March 13, 2000 was John Rabe's first day on the air at KPCC, which had just switched from an eclectic music station to an all news format. Back then, we had 150,000 listeners, a tiny budget, and a largely volunteer staff. Now, 600,000 people listen every week, we have a new building (the Mohn Broadcast Center, built through our capital campaign), and bring good, solid local and NPR news to practically every corner of Southern California. Larry Mantle joins John in the newsroom to talk about the old days and the changes they've seen and taken part in.
