Uttered by Mike Francesa, normally a sports talk host on WFAN but today reminiscing about television broadcasts on and about November 22, 1963.  (You young whippersnapper will want to google "Kukla, Fran, and Ollie" to see what this is an eggcorn for; it was a favorite show of mine some years before '63, and indeed it seems to have been off the air after 1957.)
