KTRB Memorabilia from the Bill Bates Years
Goodwin Knight was elected as the Lieutenant Governor of California under Earl Warren in 1946 then reelected in 1950. He became governor himself when Warren resigned to become Chief Justice of the United States in 1953.  The date of this United Press International  (UPI) story would have been between 1946 and 1950.   UPI was the principal source of news and competed with the Associated Press (AP).  
KTRB promotional brochure believe to be from the 1950s.
During the Vietnam war  Bill Bates asked listeners to donate afghan's to be given to injured servicemen recuperating at a navel hospital in Oakland.   Approximately 1 1/2 tons of afghans were  later delivered to the hospital by Cal Purviance, Don Schneider and Phil Barber.   In this photo newsman Don Schneider inspects some of the afghans collected with a local nurse.
