It's The Eagle's Birthday this Saturday!  This will mark 24 years that Eagle 106.3 Texarkana's Classic Rock station has been rockin' the Texarkana area!

The Eagle signed on the air on this day back in 1995. All of us at The Eagle know it wouldn't be possible to be around this long without you, our listeners. So, thank you!

Did you know that The Eagle was the first station in Texarkana to stream online? And now we even have our very own App. Have you downloaded it yet? Not only can you listen to us on your phone, but be sure and sign up for notifications about breaking news and weather.

Eagle 106.3 was born on this day in 1995. So we thought it'd be interesting to see what was making news back in 1995.


Some of the big news stories from 1995 include:

Toy Story is released and is the first fully computer-generated film and we loved it.

Sadly, the Oklahoma City bombing of a Federal Building killed 168 people and injured more than 680 people.

Windows 95 is released.

DVD format is introduced.

A new way of shopping was introduced with eBay.

O.J. Simpson is found innocent of murder.


According to The People History website:

US Postage Stamp 32 cents
Average cost of new car $15,500

Things may have changed a bit over the years, but one thing is for sure... we still love our listeners! So, thank you for cranking up the volume with us and cheers!
