A note about NBC's fourth chime: The 3 chime notes were struck during the what use to be NBCs "station identification" at the top of each hour.  When the 4th chime was struck it was a signal to the program or station manager to delay or suspend regular programming for a special announcement afterwards. During WW-II, it was often a report on the war effort.
