This is the 32 minute launch of KCPQ TV Ch. 13 Tacoma as a commercial station on Nov. 4, 1980. Their launch program after the preview was “The Deer Hunter.”

A little history: KCPQ signed off on Feb. 28, 1980 as a PBS station. Its tentative TV listings were posted by Seattle papers for Oct. 28-Nov. 3 but were never broadcast as far as I know. More about that another time.

Keep up the good work!!
