A Wealth of Information

I recently had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of Charlie Pena, Facilities Manager for Clear Channel here in Houston. He put together the very impressive tribute to KPRC's 85th anniversary and a display of the histories of the CC stations in the office and studio complex. I had the opportunity to tour that very impressive facility with Charlie and then we sat down and he shared with me even more. Charlie is a history buff and he's been in the position several times over the years to save memorabilia from the stations he's been associated with. And now, he's offered to share some of his material with the readers of this blog.

Over several posts I will be making use of that material including photos and documents from KTRH's 80 year history, an article on KTRH as an all news station in the 1980s and a history of Houston broadcasting put together 20 years ago by a KTRH employee.

My thanks to Charlie for sharing this material; all of us who are interested in the history of radio in Houston owe him a debt of gratitude.
