1170 San Diego, KCBQ

Found on a tape we thought we’d already processed was this gem. From the Summer of ’73, here’s wildman Rich Brother Robin apprearing in what sounds like his return to KCBQ (we never knew he left!). Perhaps he’d just been on vacation. No matter, Rich Bro is the poster child for high energy Top 40. Right up there with Jack Armstrong, Bill Lee and other screamers, Rich Brother Robin doesn’t let us down in this nine-plus minutes of scoped AM Top 40 heaven.

It really didn’t get much better than KCBQ in ’73. This is more proof.

One thought on “Rich Brother Robbin, KCBQ San Diego | June, 1973”
  1. Rich left Q in 1972 to work for Don Barrett (now publisher of LARadio.com) in the launch of KIQQ (K-100), Los Angeles (formerly Country KFOX). Don was GM, Rich was PD. It was an innovative Adult Contemporary…but after only a few months, Bill Drake and Gene Chenault signed a contract to program the station. It re-launched with Robert W. Morgan and The Real Don Steele in December, 1973.

    Rich didn’t stick around for the flip…he went back to KCBQ…and this is the aircheck of the first night back.
