CCATS LOAD CONTROL channel, local Houston late night radio (2 am on April 10) is heard with a news broadcast mentioning the final countdown and Mattingly's replacement before going on to other things. That restaurant in the commercial sounds cheap (95 cents) and good! Just before where I start is some music "It takes a worried man to sing a worried song" which could be Apollo 13's theme.

It is KTHT radio station. The sponsor is Bill Bennett's Steakhouse in the Sky/Bill Bennett's 24-Hour Restaurant. I bet they didn't worry about cholesterol there. The announcer is Jim Wilson. It persists for about an hour but regrettably is lost before the 3 am news update.
