Doc Ball at AFTN Korat l969-l970        Blooper with R.C. Hurt

This "blooper" was caused by newscaster R.C. Hurt who suddenly played back an outtake bad edit in the middle of his newscast at 15 ips instead of 7 1/2 ips.  Doc turned on the air studio microphone and said "One moment please."  He forgot to turn off the mike and began pounding on the news booth window.  Eventually Doc slowly faded up a instrumental fill music selection called "The Party's Over."
