QuickChexx: The Rocketman, KFMB-FM San Diego | June, 1975

We’re thinking of Bobby Rich and his internet station ‘Bobby’s B-100‘ as this new Robyn Watts QuickChexx goes up.

Sure, this is but three minutes long, but that’s long enough to get a feel for the energy level B-100 had even in 1976! No jingles, just a jock and a stack of records (or was it carts?).

April 6, 2005 was the end of it all, as KFMB-FM, which had moved to Modern AC as “Star 100.7” in 1994, finally succumed to the ‘Jack-FM’ craze that ate up stations in Canada and the U.S. that year (including 101.1 WCBS-FM New York which mercifully reverted back to Classic Hits just two years into the format after tons of listener complaints), a format which continues today.

Now, listen to San Diego’s first FM station to beat longtime Top 40 ratings winner 1170 KCBQ in 1977… B-100 FM!
