For radio people of a certain age, "WKRP in Cincinnati" was the greatest show ever invented. Heck, it was the reason a lot of us were insane enough to lust for a career on the dial in the first place.
In addition to being an awesome show, they also played a ton of great music. And someone, somehow, went through every episode and wrote down every song they ever played: A total of almost 300 tracks over four seasons.
If even thinking about navigating your way through huge, boisterous crowds makes you cringe, San Antonio TV comes to the rescue with some stellar New Year’s Eve celebrations — including our city’s own rocking Tricentennial bash.
The best way for viewers to soak up the local spectacle, which kicks off the city’s 300th birthday, is via KSAT. The ABC affiliate and its many news personalities will provide hour after hour of live, continuous coverage throughout the night and early morning.
Tricentennial officials preparing contingencies for NYE celebration
With the city’s annual New Year’s Eve party, doubling as the kickoff to the yearlong Tricentennial celebration, just more than a week away, officials are working on contingency plans to ensure inclement weather doesn’t spoil the event.
The Tricentennial Commission has added legendary accordionist Flaco Jiménez to the lineup for its New Year’s Eve celebration, the San Antonio Express-News has confirmed.
Jiménez will join Little Joe y la Familia, the San Antonio-based Last Bandoleros, Selena-cover-band Bidi Bidi Banda, Austin-based country singer Sam Riggs, Pat Benatar and REO Speedwagon for the Dec. 31 show at Hemisfair.
Why do you think former Tricentennial Commission CEO Edward Benavides chose Pat Benatar and REO Speedwagon to headline San Antonio’s 300th birthday kickoff?
A. He wanted two acts that were relevant when San Antonio was founded.
B. Keith Emerson, Jerry Garcia, Doug Sahm and David Bowie were booked.
C. He thought this was the practice run for the next time San Antonio celebrates its 300th birthday.
The cleanup effort is in full-effect for San Antonio’s upcoming Tricentennial celebration.
It’s an effort that appears to be going in the right direction under Assistant City Manager Carlos Contreras, who has taken charge of the struggling Tricentennial Commission. He’s replaced Edward Benavides, who resigned as the nonprofit commission’s chief executive officer after some high-profile stumbles. Benavides remains a city employee.

The ‘What Say Ye?’ podcast: The women behind @ProvoGuysAmIRight on consent and dodging ickiness
Pat Benatar was right: Love IS a battlefield. She didn’t write the song about Utah County’s dating scene, but she might as well have. In Part 2 of our series on Utah County dating, we interview the women behind @ProvoGuysAmIRight, an Instagram account that highlights the sometimes questionable advances of Provo’s single men. What is it like for women dating in Utah County? And what is it like to be a woman running...
STAMFORD-A city man who got his parent’s car locked in a downtown parking garage, was arrested for allegedly busting the vehicle through the gate early Thursday morning.
But adding injury to insult, police say the man, Brett Ely, 21, was arrested at Stamford Hospital, because he used his fist to break a window in the car when he couldn’t find his keys. But police say the man’s girlfriend ended up finding them in a pocket.
