Our first listen to the Las Vegas market has nothing to do with slot machines, craps, poker or any of that! Here’s deep-voiced Mike O’Neil on a live and well executed Oldies format on KBGO Big Oldies 93. Even into the early 90s, many oldies stations still tried to recreate at least the old Johnny Mann jingles or some of the old sounds… well, KBGO did use the old ‘Drake’ top of the hour anthem, but with a different voice and a modern station jingle tag. It does sound good, however, even if the few Drake sounds are faux.
This is a first-generation original recording recorded around the Christmas holiday in 1993 that will please your ears! Don’t look for any Christmas songs (scoped) here… there just aren’t any in this short glimpse of the format, but at least they DO say ‘Happy Holidays” in one of the jingles.
