did you know Walter Cronkite was the first news anchor at that station?

Man, that announcer was depressing!

No TV until 6:50 a.m.? Those were the days!

On KCRA, they played this...up until 1986!! Hard to believe it's only been 30 years!

The Bee is awesome, isn't he? We used to stay up just to see that.
