    Stations owned by Gray — which stretch across the country from Fairbanks, Alaska, to West Palm Beach, Fla., to Presque Isle, Maine — play the company’s national anthem video in the early morning, typically around 4 a.m., though several schedule it for a second run before or after their evening newscasts, Howell said. Nexstar stations — which now number nearly 200 after the company acquired Tribune Media Company — and most of the CBS-owned stations also play their version of the anthem before dawn. In New York (WCBS), Los Angeles (KCBS), Chicago (WBBM), Philadelphia (KPY) and Boston (WBZ), it plays around 4:30 a.m.

    Replays from the past.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    When I babysat for people who didn't have cable, I knew when I heard the national anthem that I was going to get paid well. Parents always felt guilty if they made their 15 year old babysitter stay up past 2 am.

    Otherwise, it reminds me of Poltergeist. LOL.

    I remember when television stations played the Star Spangled Banner right before television stations signed off for the night. The good old days.

    Headphones for record-players became lifesavers. For other devices too. Not just for music, but for comedy-LP's. Bill Dana, Alan Sherman... etc.

    It is good to know we are once again being sufficiently anthemed.
