The Early Days of KTRB 1933 to1960’s video.  The music tracks in this video include the “Beer Barell Polka “used by station owner Bill Bates, to open his  program each morning.    “Get out those old phonograph records” was used by Virgil Risley each evening while dusting off the oldies, mostly78 rpm’s, for his show.   The very first song ever played on KTRB was “Back in your back yard” which followed Bill Bates welcoming comments as the station came on the air on June 18,1933.
