75 years ago today, Bing Crosby first performs “White Christmas” on Kraft Music Hall, which airs on San Antonio radio station KABC (now KKYX).

It’s not a white Christmas in San Antonio – far from it!  The mercury rises to a record high of 90 degrees in the Alamo City. Still a record high for the date.

A huge mountain of mulch in Helotes catches fire and burns for over two months.  The mulch pile gets its own MySpace page and is nicknamed “Mulchie.”
