Dick Biondi, KRLA Los Angeles | June 14, 1965

“…First in Music, First in Fun!” Dick Biondi (WBBM-FM, WLS, others) is captured for all time on this near studio-quality recording from 1110 KRLA, just two months after crosstown 93 KHJ flipped to Bill Drake consulted Top 40. After listening to this, one could easily understand why KHJ clobbered KRLA in the ratings. While very entertaining and immensely popular, Dick Biondi talks after EVERY record! In fact, the whole format is, while typical of early-mid 1960s Top 40 radio, disorganized and cluttered. Drake came along at KHJ, removed the clutter, started playing 2-3 records in a row, and blew everyone out of the water. About this particular aircheck. Our regular ‘PD’ visitor will likely have much to say. Please. By all means, fill in the blanks. Here are our ...

Phase II – The KRLA Jingles | July 28, 1972

All we have is some brief liner notes on the case of this Maxell UR-60 casette to describe what apparently was actually broadcast on KRLA Pasadena. The actual title is, “Touch Unlimited presents, PHASE II, the most unique station promos in the history of radio”. The credits for this are Bob Todd, Don McGinnis and Shadoe Stevens. The second half of this which is pure jingles which we put into a montage, apparently feature the ‘distinctive voice of Kenny Loggins’. Webmaster’s note: I frankly have no idea where this came from but it sure is unique. Longtime listeners to Pittsburgh’s KDKA will notice the similarity, apparently this is from the exact same package. So, my guess is the KDKA package was based on this KRLA demo, not the other way around. Someone ...
