QuickCheck: The Real Don Steele, KHJ Los Angeles | 1971

“…You can trust your car to the man who wears the star”

So begins this all-too-short, rare recording of RDS on 93/KHJ. We join things right in the middle of a commercial break (Texaco). We’re listening to KHJ in ’71, and while the Bill Drake era is all but over, the format is intact with all the familiar Drake formatics.

  1. This is from March, 1971. Bill Drake had two years and two months left…more than a quarter of his time at KHJ. So the Drake era wasn’t really “all but over”.

  3. The tape ends with Mark Elliott starting his show at noon…before Steele. Was this edited out of a KHJ composite?

    • I did no edit on this. If this were a composite, the contributor didn’t tell me. I posted it as is from the audio on the source tape.
