Here's a trip in the wayback machine for you . . .

I just started watching "Poltergeist" a few minutes ago, and the opening includes the background sound of a "Star Spangled Banner" end-of-broadcast-day television spot.

When's the last time YOU heard and/or saw one of those?

AAGH! We use the national anthem to sign off our AM station every evening at sundown. I think thats a good idea, BUT this started right after 9/11, and the boss had us mix a "patriotic" mashup with Pres Bush giving his anti=terrorism speech, including "Lets roll". That is now five years old, and its driving me nutso. I keep meaning to replace it with the regular anthem, but I would be courting trouble.

The boss sounds like he has precious little grip on reality

Wow...I do remember when the television stations would sign off with the national anthem playing and a flag waving in the breeze.

That seems like such a life time ago.
