Why the Angels in St Joseph’s Catherdral Look Familiar…

This week we have some World War II stories. You’ll meet Bob Keive, owner of local radio station KLIV and former speech-writer for former President Dwight Eisenhower. Then, we have a love story for you about a WWII pilot who bailed out over enemy territory and was rescued by the French Underground.

This week’s show was shot on location at St Joseph’s Cathedral in San Jose. Back in 1803 a San Jose’s first catholic church was built on at the corner of San Fernando and Market. Earthquakes and fires took their toll over and in 1876 the cornerstone was laid for the 4th church on this site. We are going to do a little exploring and learn lots more of the history behind the art and architecture in one of this California landmark, including why the angel’s faces seem familiar.
