A Day in the Life -

- of a Galveston radio listener, Sunday, February 2, 1947.   KGBC had signed on the previous day but there were no listings in the Galveston News for that day; these are the first published listings.  The News also published the listings for the three Houston stations whose signals would reach Galveston.  The only other Houston AM on the air at that time, KTHT, was still operating on 1230 kc with only 250 watts and probably was not listenable to most Galvestonians.

An ad published in the News on Saturday, February 1, for KGBC's first day was posted here.
