93.1 KCBS-FM

Machine Gun Kelly, Oldies 93 KCBS-FM Los Angeles | Date unknown

Date of Recording: Unknown Station: 93.1 KCBS-FM Los Angeles, California Featured Air Talent: M.G. Kelly Airchexx Entry: 654 (Repost at 1,451) Comments: Its always great to hear the gunner, and this is no exception… but why does your webmaster detect a hint of Dan Ingram sarcasm in Kelly’s delivery? Were it not for this exceptionally orchestrated set of KCBS-FM jingles and Southern California traffic reports, one could easily imagine being on the east coast and listening to 101.1 FM. Obviously this was a cloned station, CBS trying to imitate it’s NYC format in Los Angeles… and perhaps if not for KRTH being so well entrenched in the format, KCBS-FM could have done well.. but that’s a discussion for another time. There is no date on this recording but we know th...

Charlie Tuna; Chris Taylor, 93.1 KCBS-FM Los Angeles | 1993

We know it’s a Friday morning, as Charlie Tuna says, “Have a Good Weekend”, and this is Los Angeles. One of the greatest attempts to topple crosstown KRTH “K-Earth 101 is heard here, with one of KHJ’s legendary jocks holding down morning drive!

Now, for those of you who don’t know what this station is or where it came from, this is the old HitRadio 93 KKHR from the MID 1980s, and the very old but much loved Soft Rock KNX-FM. You COULD consider this Los Angeles’ mirror of Boston’s 103.3, which also went through the same progression of formats, (Sof...

“Arrow Talent Sampler” – KCBS-FM & KXOA (FM) | 1995

Perhaps this was the first incarnation anywhere of the modern “Classic Hits” format which most American Oldies stations have morphed into. This particular tape illustrates two Infinity (CBS) stations: 93.1 KCBS-FM Los Angeles (Arrow 93) and 107.9 KXOA (FM) (Arrow 108). Based on the tape label, and the fact that KXOA ran the format from the Spring of 1994 until the station was sold in 1996 from Brown Broadcasting to Entercom, we can assume that the label is correct. Just not accurate enough to nail down the actual date. Your webmaster had written that he thought the format sounded bland upon hearing it on Washington DC’s WARW “Arrow 94” (which was when I was serving active duty in the U.S. Navy, stationed at Ft. McHenry Baltimore training Reservists and writing...
