SFX: ANNOYING TICKING. UP, UNDER.
ULYSSES: Welcome back to “On the Hour,” the only program where it’s New Year’s Eve every hour, on the hour. I’m your host, Ulysses S. Scrimshaw.
At the tone, the time will be, precisely, 7 P.M. (A BEAT, THEN…) Aaaaand…
SFX: A SILLY TOOT OF A HORN.
ULYSSES: There you have it.
Please remember to keep your celebratory antics respectable. And please, drink in moderation. And if you feel this program may have felt inaccurate, please adjust your clock accordingly and replay this show until satisfied.
I was and still am Ulysses S. Scrimshaw, and this has been “On the Hour.” And we’ll see you again, in, oh, say, fifty-nine minutes. Goodbye.
