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 that this is from a reasonably small window of time between July of 1991 when 93.1 got the KCBS-FM calls (switching from KODJ) and September 1993 when they dropped the Oldies format. Some of our listenters may remember the promotions and give us a better date estimate.

Bobby Ocean is the imaging voice.

    One clue: Charlie Tuna’s mentioned in this aircheck. He left CBS-FM in June of 1992 to replace Robert W. Morgan at KMPC (Morgan went to KRTH). So this is somewhere between July 1991 and July 1992.

    Dear Submitter,

    If you have anymore recordings of, “Oldies 93 CBS-FM” I would love to hear more. I’ve grown up and lived in Huntington Beach CA all my life and remember this station, my parents listened to it ALL THE TIME. If there’s anyway u could send me some recordings or post more I would truly be a happy person. Just listening to the almost 7 mins posted on here brought back memories.

    Thank you so much, Paul
