KCBQ was in the midst of morphing from what it was in the 60s to what it became – a 70s powerhouse Top 40 station known for its one shotgun jingle, and what became known as the “Q” format.
This is Bobby Ocean’s KCBQ. You hear a jock who sounds, if one could draw an analogy, much like Dick Robinson of WDRC fame. Its the voice and personality. The news guy sounds a bit like Terrence McKeever (WHBQ, KOUL), but nobody identifies themselves, just the music. Lots of promos that mention the new Q, and one which reminds listeners to send in the list of voices to name in the “Guess Who Q” contest. No wonder nobody says their name!
Does anybody remember this contest? Was it a format change of sorts? New staff hirings? We just don’t know, but someone out there does… so thats what our comment feature is for.
