950 KPRC-AM hits 85 years

And you thought it was exciting when 740 KTRH turned 80 this year. Well 950 KPRC is 85 this weekend:

The station's first studios were in the Post-Dispatch building on the southwest corner of Polk and Dowling. The newspaper had just moved into the building in March and, since no plans had been made to house the station, improvised space had to be created. The studios were set up in the fourth floor "morgue" or clippings library, a very cramped space. READ THE REST

As someone who has been a guest in the current KPRC studio, I can say it is the furthest thing from cramped. BTW, the 950 website says more historical material is coming through the week.
