  1. Here is a video of KTRK signing off from 1983. http://www.dailymoti...1990_shortfilms
  2. Does anyone remember Donald Trest? He parachuted off of an antenna in a gorilla suit. http://www.chron.com/CDA/archives/archive.mpl?id=1985_213607
  3. I remember 39-2, The Tube. It went off the air in 2007. I do remember Channel 5 being a music video channel. The signal was not that great though.
  4. Here is screen cap of KTRK from 1980 at late night. http://www.qsl.net/w...ages/801016.jpg http://www.qsl.net/wa5iyx/tvdximg.htm I am guessing it was station ID or might be what they displayed when they signed off.
  5. Here is a video of 1965 KRPC-AM 950 radio signing off.
  6. Wish local TV could be like this again. I wonder what happened to that.
  7. I like In N Out. Great burgers! Carl's Jr. and Hardee's are owned by the same company. Just look at their logo.
  8. Cool stuff! You can see how much Houston has changed.
  9. Channel 51's signal is spotty at best. I sometimes pick it up and other times I do not.
  10. I didn't know that KTRK signed-off outright in this decade. I figured that would be common in the 1970s and 1980s. If 13 went static, it probably happened in 2000 on a weekend. I did see 13 do their so-called sign off and they went to World News Now. The only station that signs off is 11 and they do it on Saturdays and Sundays around 4:00 AM. It's for 20 minutes.
  11. Are you talking about this one? This one is from a Tulsa station in the 1970s.
  12. If KTRK signed off, did it go static or did they use a test pattern? Same goes with any Houston television station that signed off in the 1970s to early 1990s. When I was a kid, the only station I remember seeing signing off was KUHT and they did it early enough for me to see. They would play the American anthem and go all static.
  13. I saw her on a vintage footage of Kuualani The Weather Girl on YouTube. Whatever happen to Kuualani The Weather Girl, who was on KHTV, now KIAH? What is her real name?
  14. Two great icons passed today, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. Ed McMahon died a couple days ago. I used to like Michael Jackson before he became a freak show. I like Bad. Farrah Fawcett was a true beauty from Texas. Ed McMahon was a star in his own right despite being a sidekick. RIP to all.
