Gary Owens on KMPC Los Angeles | August 1, 1969 (corrected)

It’s wierd, listening to this era once again. While there is a ton of history associated with the few monster Top 40 stations of the day, such as WABC, WLS and KHJ, less is available about the more, Middle Of the Road […]

Thanks again to BigAppleAirchecks for another classc… KHJ at the end of 1978, was the poster child of liner card radio. Sure, the music is on target, but the jocks really had their hands tied and couldn’t really be themselves. The station’s […]
