J.T. on the slide on K O G O..
I’m not sure what to make of this. Late 70s soft AC or Middle of the Road (MOR) format with a lot of commercials. We never hear the jock’s name but somebody knows. This sounds like a competent station but I know the San Diego market well enough to know there were some powerhouse stations in town, not to mention the FM stations were becoming Giant, legendary stations. How well it rated in this 1977-78 timeframe I do not know, but there’s a line in Wikipedia where someone wrote,
My guess is the answer lies on that page as to what became of KOGO. At any rate, we have what I’d call a typical Full Service AC station here, led by a jock who is nameless. It’s kinda a breath of fresh air to hear this again as it’s not loud, screaming jocks in your face, just someone personable and likeable. And that does sell, assuming the cockroaches they had for sales knew what they were doing.
