“The Number One Radio Show”, XTRA 690 Tijuana Mexico, 12/29/84-1/1/85. Anyone remember this?
Doing a little research in the search engines, I’ve found absolutely nothing on a program I remember. Maybe someone out there can help.
Back in 1984, I was in San Diego in Radioman “A” School in the U.S. Navy. One of the stations I really liked was Top 40 formatted XTRA “The Mighty” 690, targeting San Diego from its mighty transmitter in Tijuana, Mexico. New Year’s Day was apparently format change day, and the entire weekend, they ditched the top 40 format and played this syndicated program called “The Number One Radio Show”. I can’t remember who narrated it… for some reason I think it was Robert W. Morgan, but this was New Year’s Day 1985 and as I recall the show went up to 1980. The bumber music used was the final 3 notes of “What Goes Up” from the Alan Parsons Project.
Does anyone remember this show and what stations it might have aired on? I find it interesting that I’ve never heard it played since, on any other radio station. Curiocity simply killed the cat on this one, I simply throw this out to our audience for discussion.
