    music, movies, broadcasting and buildings..... my life is so interesting
  1. Lower Westheimer, 1986

    The front of Katz's is the original facade. The rest of the building is new construction. I remember when the building was gutted for the coming 'M Bar', the side and back walls were removed and the front was shored up.
  2. I've wondered about this as well. I saw Mike McGuff's response to someone on Facebook that said Dave wasn't retiring. I think he will land somewhere else. My suspicion is KPRC because 13's former long time news director is over there now. Eyewitness News is not what it used to be, maybe Dave realizes this.
  3. Wells Fargo Tower

    Channel 5
  4. Wells Fargo Tower

    no actually it wasn't VH1, it was a local low power video channel that went under the calls K05HU with the moniker "TV5" then later "Hit Video USA". VH1 had already signed on in early '85, K05HU went on air in July. Hit Video attempted to go national on cable but it never panned out as they hoped.
  5. The old Del Taco on Edgebrook is now Marcos Seafood & Oyster Bar, the facade has been altered some, mostly the upper portion of the building
  6. Defunct Houston Restaurants

    I remember that one on Fondren because I used to pass by it on the way to my girlfriends house off of Gessner. They used to go there a lot, her dad hung out there quite a bit too.
  7. Del Taco (old locations)

    Another post here had it listed at 917 Edgebrook Not sure if this is the original building with altered facade but here it it
  8. Del Taco (old locations)

    could be looking at the wrong building but I know it was around there, it sat abandoned for quite a few years
  9. Del Taco (old locations)

    S Braeswood & Hillcroft (became a Shipleys) Edgebrook near Theta (closed for a long time, now a Mexican restaurant)
  10. Del Taco (old locations)

    They were still around in 86. Had a friend in high school that worked there. Didn't know which location though
  11. Telephone Rd

    Was not aware of that Purple, wow!
  12. The Four Palms

    Wow I totally forgot about those places on Telephone. I was just a kid in the 70s. I remember passing by those adult places along that stretch before and just passed 610, on the way to see family, that was our usual route. I do remember my mom circling the buildings there at Telephone & Lancaster one night, looking for my dads car. She found it. My dad gave her plenty of reasons not to trust him (they divorced in 86). I had forgotten about all of that.
  13. A 93Q Classic Weekend???

    I have an antenna on the roof that can pull in up to 65 miles. Glad you liked our burgers Purple!
  14. A 93Q Classic Weekend???

    Thanks Purple
  15. A 93Q Classic Weekend???

    Maybe someone over at Cox read my reply to Joe's post on Radio Discussions and had a change of heart. Those guys are morons, "bringing forward all this old material tarnishes their current "country music leader" image". REALLY? They want to keep it buried so no one realizes the 93Q name wasn't an original idea (even the morning show is called "The NEW Q Morning Zoo"). I mean come on, when TPTB rehashed that moniker in 1992, the original format had only been dead 1 year. We weren't going to remember this? So basically this station is riding off of the success of it's previous identity and management is trying to act like it's all their own. Get the **** outta here.
