Just two days before Christmas and all through the South, not a station played oldies… okay you get the picture. It’s the end of 1997, and K-Lite has morphed from a 60s based Oldies outlet to more of a 70s/80s hybrid. While he doesn’t say it, the morning guy’s name is Tom… but I’ve long since forgotten his last name, I just remember that he was on WTAR 790 Norfolk back in the 80s.
This clip starts out with a commercial for Marco’s Electronics… the voice on this is Lon Gonzalez, then you get two breaks of the morning show, then on to Roxy Waters. I seem to remember meeting her one time earlier that year before your webmaster left KLTG in February.
The Corpus Christi market at that time was about 40 percent Tejano or Mexican regional, one oldies station (this one), three country stations (KOUL, KFTX and KRYS AM/FM) and a few Rock stations (co owned KRAD 105.5 among them).
Enjoy this look at a good sounding if not image-confused Oldies/Classic Hits station!
