“Position 93, your California JAM Station…”
It may be quick, at under 5 minutes, but you certainly get a feel for the pace of the legendary 93/KHJ, with some equally legendary West Coast jocks each of whom are still in the business!
This starts out with Charlie Tuna, moves on to Bobby Ocean and then some great Machine Gun Kelly. There are no jingles, as this new format approach, known for a short time as “Position 93” supposedly eliminated the need for them. Where the format went next after this part of the year 1978 was right down the Top 40 tubes, as KHJ for about a year went to a more music, less talk almost AOR sounding format before making one last try at personality-based Top 40. But this still sounds GOOD! This is still high-energy, even with the conspicuous lack of format elements that made most Top 40 stations cook!
