I know Frank from the days when we worked together at 103.7 KOUL back in 1997 when it was owned by Broadcasting Corporation of the Southwest and still playing Country music.

Roxy Waters, KLTG Corpus Christi | December 23, 1997

Date of Recording: 12.23.1997 Station: 96.5 KLTG Corpus Christi, Texas, USA Format: Oldies Featured Air Personality: Roxy Waters Contributor: John Elliot Comments: Just two days before Christmas and all through the South, not a station played oldies… okay you get the picture. It’s the end of 1997, and K-Lite has morphed from a 60s based Oldies outlet to more of a 70s/80s hybrid. While he doesn’t say it, the morning guy’s name is Tom… but I’ve long since forgotten his last name, I just remember that he was on WTAR 790 Norfolk back in the 80s. This clip starts out with a commercial for Marco’s Electronics… the voice on this is Lon Gonzalez, then you get two breaks of the morning show, then on to Roxy Waters. I seem to remember meeting her one t...

1996 Presidential Debate, 103.7 KOUL Corpus Christi Tx

Election season is heating up now and we’d be remiss if we didn’t post this bit of election parody done for the 1996 Presidential Election. Actually, all this was from a Newsman whose talent was noticed by RKO general, way back in the big days of the Disco Duck era, as Rick Dees’ sidekick at WHBQ Memphis. This is the “Doc & McKeever morning show on KOUL. At the time, “Cool 103” was the leading Country station in South Texas. Steve Weldon and I talked a lot back then, and before I left for different parts, Steve handed me this tape and said, “I hope you get some laughs from this”. I’m sure he never thought this would end up in a museum. Appearing in no particular order, the characters of Ross Perot, Bob Dole, Al Gore, former Preside...

Steve Sawyer, 103.7 KOUL Sinton/Corpus Christi TX | November 21, 1996

1996 was a great year for Country music. No matter what city one lived in, ‘New’ Country, as they called the format was hot, with artists like Faith Hill, Ty Herndon, Tim McGraw and John Michael Montgomery being the new up-and-coming or recently established artists of the day. This was before Keith Urban or most of today’s mega-stars, and it was the fourth year of Country’s big resurgence of the 90s after being considered long-dead from the mid-70s till about 1992. Its with this background that we present 103.7 KOUL, a onetime market leader in 1994-95, tied with crosstown K-99 for number one in the city, down, at the time of this aircheck to number 5. There were many reasons for this, most notably the lack of personality, as by this time, PD Dave Collins had essenti...
