KCAC Lives on Facebook

SInce we all seem to be on Facebook these days, we've created a community page for this group now, here.
All of the blog posts can also be seen there by clicking on the "Blog" tab.
Also, pardon the redesign to this blog. Supposed to make things easier to do, but it does look a little different.

Compton's Christmas Message from 1970

A week late with this, but better late than never! Courtesy of Tom Wright: KCAC's Bill Compton on the air, 12/23/70.
