    ...CBS also used this one at thir Chicago owned-and-operated station, WBBM-TV, and I think as well as the rest of their O&O's. I'm pretty sure that CBS had to discontinue using it because that last charicature is obviously Charlie Chaplin and the Chaplin Estate threatened legal action...

    Dear Parktype,

    Before the staffers at WCBS TV Ch.2 in NYC

    used the animated titles of the apartments with the

    lights going out to signal the start of"The Late Show"?

    "The Late Show"opened on a live picture of a

    glass clock with moving figurines inside of it.

    And you can hear Mr.Leroy Anderson's"Syncopated

    Clock"tune playing on the air.

    I remember this bumper. It was used from the late 1970's until the era of late night movies ended. When I was a little kid, the promo used the "Syncopated Clock" music against an animated background of a group of apartment buildings with the lights going out in each apartment.

    You just don't see this kind of creative stuff anymore.

An unspeakable tragedy confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City: John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the West Side of New York City. The most famous perhaps, of all of The Beatles, shot twi...
