Last night at the 40th Birthday celebration for WDGC, The King appeared, live in person. Well, actually, it was Bob West as Elvis, but his performance was so electrifying it was just as good as the real thing! Thanks to Mr. West for appearing. You can learn more about him at http://www.bobwestelvis.com/. You can also watch for reruns of the show on Cable 99, channel 16 in Downers Grove.

Today, November 25, marks the day in 1968 when WDGC got word that we were allowed to broadcast over the air, at 10 Watts. To celebrate, Cable 99 is hosting a live TV show featuring all sorts of live entertainment! In honor of the day here is a picture of Fred Moore, who started the station in 1965 (not on the air), working in one of the early WDGC studios. We are also celebrating by broadcasting a live basketball game tonight. Happy Birthday!
