Color television arrived in San Antonio today but it will be some time before the average person will be able to afford and enjoy it in his home. The first color TV programs were broadcast by WOAI – the “Today” show from 6 to 8 a.m. and “Home” from 9 to 10 a.m. For the present time, no color programs in color will originate locally. The programs were available for viewing in color at the Wolff & Marx department store on a handmade television with a 14-inch screen.
