This mixture of news casts, advertisements, and silent footage of Lubbock's Channel 13 KDUB-TV facilities provides insight into the operations and programming at a medium sized television station in the 1950s and 1960s. KDUB-TV began its broadcasting life in 1952 from a temporary home with its transmitter initially located atop the Lubbock National Bank building. The following year, KDUB opened its own studio at S. College Avenue; among the footage in this reel is the Lubbock National Bank building as well as the grand opening of the College Avenue studio. Also included are two KDUB newscasts: the first from 1957 hosted by Jimmy Isaacs, and a second newscast from 1962 hosted by Jim Key. The newscasts are punctuated by several advertisements by local sponsors, including: Rath Black Hawk Meats, Homer G. Maxey and Company, United Supermarkets, and Zales Jewelers. Also on the reel is a telethon for March of Dimes featuring an appearance and performance by Alvin Childress and Spencer Williams as Amos and Andy – in kilts.
