San Antonio’s second television station, KEYL, goes on the air with its first test pattern (right), broadcasting on Channel 5, at noon today. Regular programming began on February 1. The station is operated by the San Antonio Television Company. (KEYL will later change its call letters to KENS.)
St. Mary’s Street Bar & Grill, located at St. Mary’s Street and Woodlawn, has closed for extensive remodeling but there are fears it will never reopen. Owner Bob Popp stated, “I’m not really at liberty to say anything else about what’s going on until I talk to my lawyers.”
Demolition begins on the Bluebonnet Hotel.
