“Position 93, your California JAM Station…” Please scroll down and read an important message Curator’s Notes: Contributor Mike Donovan sent this in about 7 years ago, but it’s as relevant now as it was then. Legendary Top 40 station 93 KHJ still had it’s array of 1970s high-powered jocks, but “The New Sound of KHJ” was trying to compete with L.A. are...

Michael Boss, XETRA “The Mighty 690” Tijuana Mexico | August, 1982

Courtesy of aircheckdownloads.com, here’s a ‘check that will warm the hearts of AM Top 40 listeners from Southern California.

This was one of the stations I listened to before they flipped to Oldies. The Mighty 690 ai...

In fact, this station existed from 2000 to 2003 before ...
