Final Analog Sign-off - Thursday, 16 April 2009
Page modified Tuesday, 16 June 2020
The final few moments of Texas' capital city's PBS member station. KLRU, along with its former sister station KLRN-TV 9 in San Antonio, ended analog transmissions with a National Anthem film, probably produced sometime in the 1970s. This SSB is unusual, for it features acoustic guitar and a female voice singing the fourth stanza of the "The Star Spangled Banner" instead of the first. After this is a static slide of the two stations and five translators of the Southwest Texas Public Broadcasting Council. KLRU-TV 18 signed on in 1979 as a satellite of KLRN-TV 9, which went on the air in 1962. The stations went their separate ways in the mid-1980s. KLRU is the PBS station that produces the long-running PBS music series Austin City Limits.
