Winter Composite: 55 KSD St. Louis | January, 1979
Introducing new Contributor Bob Buchhauer, and the first of many original airchecks!
Bob says he’s not very tech-saavy, but he decided to scope these down for us, and judging by his first attempt, we’re not complaining!
Here’s what appears to be a full-day composite of 55 KSD (Now News/Talk KTRS), beginning with Ron Morgan’s morning show. All the elements of full-service AM radio are present in this recording… lots of time and temperature checks – and, boy, it’s cold in the nation’s mid-section this particular morning… at 10 below zero (F) even the dogs won’t go outside!
Listen as this recording moves through it’s 11 minutes, and hear all about 55 KSD’s Disney Dream Vacation contest… Sports from Jim Holder, Barbara Howard News, then hear jocks Ed Scarborough, John St. John “The Voice of Labor”… and short clip of Doug (I *think* the last name is Kera or Kara) and what is probably an early evening talk show (one of our listeners knows), then back to the music with Lee Feller on “MusicRadio 55 KSD”.
This is the kind of radio I remember from my teen years, although I never heard KSD, as I was a kid from Massachusetts, we had a station that sounded this good, WBZ ‘Radio 1030′. Everybody listend to BZ back then. I suspect, in St. Louis, everybody’s mom was listening to KSD back in ’79!
