Late Late Show outro music

    Does anyone know of where there's a place to see the older (Gay Byrne days) Late Late show outro? There is a video of the introduction online but not the show's outro.

    That thread refers to the opening titles (To Whom it Concerns by Chris Andrews). The lesser remembered closing tune was “The Late Late Show” by Nat King Cole, but usually only about 10 seconds, because in Gay Byrne’s era the Late Late unorthodoxily ran its credits at the start rather than the end. If it’s the visuals you’re interested in rather than the music, all it was was a slide with a freeze frame of the logo from the opening titles with “(C) RTE 1999” or whatever at the bottom.

    Years later I'm only seeing this and getting to you now. Thank you so much for the reply. It solved the mystery for me

    I can confirm that the closing theme was just played over a still slide. I saw the late 80s, early 90s version somewhere online, probably on killianM2's YouTube channel which was banned unfortunately.

    Regarding the opening titles, while the song was indeed To Whom It Concerns, RTE didn't use the Chris Andrews version. They used the Ken Woodman version from the album Town Talk.
