Video of the NBC Tower Gala: October 21, 1989
note: The five-minute video referenced on this pages
features Doc Severinsen and the "Tonight Show Orchestra"
(of blessed memory) during the course of the gala celebrating the
opening of WMAQ-TV's NBC Tower facilities. This was not broadcast
forthe public. Rather, it was performed for those in attendance
(primarily sponsors and ad-agency folks) at a rather elaborate and
very costly bash in one of the still-uncompleted studios on the
second floor of the building.
