This 1964 ad touts the design of the forthcoming WOC Broadcast Center in Davenport, Iowa.  You can read much more about it and see pictures at this WOC tribute site.

B.J. Palmer, founder of the Palmer College of Chiropractic and Davenport, Iowa, radio station WOC, launched WOC-TV in 1949.  It was Iowa’s first TV station and carried programming from all four networks at the time.  It was a primary NBC affiliate due to WOC Radio’s longtime affiliation with NBC.

WOC-TV originally aired on Channel 5, but moved to Channel 6 in 1952 to avoid interference with WOI-TV in Ames, Iowa.  

Palmer Communications sold off the radio stations in 1986, forcing Channel 6 to change its call letters.  It became KWQC-TV.  Broad Street Television purchased the station in 1989.  Young Broadcasting bought it in 1995.  

As of 2014, Media General owns KWQC.  It remains an NBC affiliate.  KWQC-TV’s long-dominant local news operation still leads the Quad Cities TV market.

See oli täitsa lahe kiik. Mees andis raudkangist hoogu juurde ja teise kangiga pidurdas. Mingi hull kangi ja kirka mehhanism. Jälle mulle meenus lapsepõlv. Olla just sedatüüpi asjade keskel - see on tunne, nagu oleks aastas 1970. Kusjuures see pole sugugi paha tunne, sest mehed pidid poisikesteks jääma ju elu lõpuni. Arvestades veel seda, kui keeruline oli tolajal väikesel poisil lõbustusparki pääseda, siis nüüd naudin selliseid vaateid täiega. Astuks nagu pika sammu ajas tagasi, mingisugusesse müstilise nostalgiasse, kus puudusid kõigele lisaks normid ja piirangud. Kui ikka “kangimees” oli hea onu ja soovis, tegi ta sulle kasvõi kümme ringi niisama veel peale.
