Looking Back — 1951 KXRO anniversary

A huge crowd gathers outside KXRO’s station on East Market Street in Aberdeen to celebrate the station’s 23rd birthday on May 26, 1951. This block looks very different today. The station’s building is gone (they’re now on Coolidge in South Aberdeen) and the two buildings to the left are part of Anchor Bank. The Covenant Church (far left) still stands but the buildings on either side of it don’t.
