Dr. Drex was on KTFM which is now Jack. He evidently is doing well in Chicago.

Does anyone know when this place closed down.. I remember it already being abandoned in the 80's so I never saw it operational.. It's in front by the Arsenal Post Office Downtown.

I would say it closed because of the area, a lot of businesses in the area closed up shop in the 80's. Across the street from the post office were the entrance ramp to 35 is there used to be a place called burger boy? It was right by the highway, anyone remember that place?

I remember Dow Sherry when he was a weatherman for the Air Force stationed in Colorado in the 1960s. He liked to sing I'm a Long Tall Texan. He liked a line that said, Is that yo' hat? Kaye Watts

Before he went to Germany on his last assignment before retiring from the Air Force, Dow Sherry was stationed in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and lived in Palmer Lake, he told me his hometown was Seguin, TX. He might not want me to say it, but his first name was Hilmar. Kaye Watts

Default Thanks for the Pics MJR7025!

It was great to see these pictures, which really make up our city. So sad when Earl Abel's closed! Thank you especially for those. Does anyone remember a Wyatt's Cafeteria? I guess Luby's bought them out.

I can still sing that Gillespie Ford ditty...it was funny seeing that again!

And irnag's right..the catch phrase for Project Terror was "Where the scientific and the terrifying emerge" along with that obnoxious grating noise and chains rattling, etc. I found this online for those of you who will appreciate it!

I just found my youth. Loved the show. Friday night sleepovers.

Remember KSAT's "12 Star Final". It was the bloodiest damn local newscast I'd ever seen. They'd get up close and personal with crime and accident victims, leaving little to the imagination. It opened with an emergency light flashing (like on top of a police car) and this big symphonic intro.

KTSA also broadcasted a program called Silhouette in the 9 pm hour on Sunday evenings in the late 1960's.

Martha Buchanan was among if not the the first female television news personalities in San Antonio. She hosted Early Evening Report at 4 pm weekdays.

KSAT was actually KONO TV when 12 Star Final debuted in the late 1950's or early 1960's. The symphonic intro was an excerpt from a march titled Purple Pageant. Listening to a recording of that piece will bring back a flood of memories, including "Certified Premium Quality" Lone Star Beer commercials that made hot summer evenings feel a bit cooler.

Does anybody remember a lunch counter named This Is It on Auditorium Circle in the 1970's?
