First I have to apologize to readers of my blog for not posting more often. I have had so many personal issues that in my opinion, were more important than this blog. Lately, I have been posting just the KCRA program schedules. Nothing really news worthy since the death of Bob, last year.
Now I am putting this blog on a hiatus as I embark on another venture: THE BOB WILKINS DATABASE. I am planning on researching and posting the schedules of all of Bob wilkins shows from KCRA to KTXL to KTVU as well as his various specials and appearances. Unlike this blog, I hope to post it all at once instead of doing it on a weekly period. I plan to start the research and debut the database by late summer 2010, if not earlier. Thanks for everyone's support especially Bob's Family, Scott Moon, Tom Wrysch, Perry Martin, Dennis Rood and many more that I wish to acknowledge but don't have the room or time. Thanks Again! :)

Happy New Year Everyone! Well, with 2009 behind me, it is time for me to move forward with this blog. With the combination of the holidays and personal family issues, my blog has slowed down a bit to just list the movies that Bob Wilkins showed on KCRA Channel 3. As we now enter 2010, Bob's tenure at KCRA was starting to wind down. He left KCRA on March 7, 1970. And he would return to the Sacramento airwaves on May 2 but this time on Independent TV Station, KTXL-40.
When I first started this blog, My main intention was to try to list Bob Wilkins KCRA program schedule on a weekly basis. When people normally think of Bob Wilkins tenure at KCRA, they tend to think of Bob Wilkins very first movie of ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE and I wanted to show that Bob showed a very diverse amount of movies and it wasn't always bad movies.
Now, rather than continue the same time consuming 40 year process with Bob's KTXL schedule (as well as his more famous KTVU Creature Features run), I am going to make a big announcement!
Starting in April, I will be compiling EVERYTHING BOB WILKINS into what I will call "THE ALMOST DEFINITIVE BOB WILKINS DATABASE". I will have complete listings of all of Bob Wilkins program schedules for not only KCRA but KTXL, and KTVU as well as his numerous specials (STAR TREK, THE MOVIE MONSTER QUIZ, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, SUPER INVADERS, 3D Movies) plus both his reunion shows (1987 KTVU and 1995 KCRA), Interviews (Sinister Cinema 1985, KTVU 1987, KTVU Two Part 1997 with Bob Shaw) and hopefully CAPTAIN COSMIC.
My goal is to finish the database by the end of Summer 2010. I am really looking forward to start and complete this project but at the same time, the end will be happening soon for this current blog. Every once in a while, I will post newsworthy stuff but not as frequent. Between the database, my work as well as family issues, I will be very busy. Thanks Again For All Of The support I have been given from Bob's wife, Sally, Bob's Official Archivist, Tom Wrysch, Planet X Magazine and Official Bob Wilkins Website Scott Moon, Horror Movie Host, Mr. Lobo, Video Producer, Perry Martin and many, many more people that I don't have the time to list! 2010 Will Be A Very Good Year! :)
