Steve Robbins, WKNR “Keener 13” Detroit | January 1967

WKNR Detroit, Keener 13

Not too many Keener airchecks floating around these days but here’s one in incredible audio fidelity! Right off the master reel is a composite of Steve Robbins, not heard anywhere else. Keener was Detroit’s ‘other’ Top 40 station, always in the shadow of CKLW across the river in Windsor Ontario, but WKNR had a very loyal following, especially in the mid-60s before CKLW literally ruled the airwaves of the Motor City!

  1. Prior to October 31, 1963, WKNR was WKMH. Years later, the WKMH call was assigned to Cleveland, and for all I know, it’s still there.
