A Virtual Tour of Sacramento
Culture & Beyond
by Alex Cosper

SacTV.com has created hundreds of videos of the Sacramento area and beyond. It's a site for both residents and visitors to dig into a vast video library and explore local people and places on video.

Some of the highlights include footage of the State Capitol, Old Sac, Downtown, Midtown, the American River, the Sacramento River and more. Check out drive videos, which are local scenes set to local music as if you were driving and local music came on the radio.

I created this site after working in local radio (KWOD, KROY, KZZO) in the 80s/90s. In 1999 I launched Sacramento's first 24/7 internet radio station called SacLive, which played local music around the clock. Since then I've worked and lived in various cities such as San Francisco, Palm Springs and San Diego. But I still have plenty of footage and stories to share about my hometown, Sacramento.

Welcome To SacTV


SacTV is a growing archive of videos, documentaries and stories that reveal what life is like living in Sacramento. I've tried to document snapshots of local history with a focus on people and places. I worked in Sacramento radio in the eighties and nineties, mainly at KWOD, the former alternative station at 106.5 FM. Many of those memories are preserved here.
