    Gee, Nick sounds like Steve Goddard’s son.

    Awesome. To put it simply. Ironically Steve Goddard is spinning some those same cuts today in PM drive on KOOL-FM Phoenix.

    I miss that hot off the cart radio. The red and yellow colors many classic 80s CHR stations used in their logos, good jocks and hot jingles. They knew how to keep the control board cooking.

    So stupid they didn’t sell booze on election day until after the election, very outdated and un-needed, I’m glad Arizona gave up on that.

    I think this was in November 1984. Bruce Springsteen came to Tempe on 11/8/84 and the high temp during the weather report was only 87. No way it was June in Arizona!!!!

    Once again, you’ve been tripped up by the European dating standard of day/month/year.

    6/11/84 would be November 6, 1984, not June 11, 1984.
