KPAC 88.3 FM Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Texas Public Radio celebrates a milestone this month. On November 7, 1982, KPAC signed on for the first time, broadcasting classical music 24 hours a day to San Antonio. Thanks to the vision and determination of Wilford Stapp, J.C. Stromberger, B.J. McClain and countless other heroes of classical music, the groundwork was laid for Texas Public Radio as it exists today, broadcasting NPR News and classical music programming to San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country.
