Rich Brother Robbin, KCBQ San Diego | June, 1973

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. […]

Jimi Fox, KFMB-FM B-100 FM San Diego | August, 1975

The New B-100-FM was so new, the ink had barely dried on station letterhead.  At least in the radio world of 1975, when FM radio still hadn’t reached parity with AM.  But it was getting close.  This was Bobby Rich‘s B-100.  The […]

Who woulda thought that in 1973 AM Top 40 would sound this good! Rich Brother Robin could open a university on how to do high-energy radio. Perhaps he should… the former WSRR (now WKIM) Memphis PD and creator of the Classic Hits […]

Sales Demo: B. Bailey Brown on KCBQ San Diego | 1969

Found among other reel golden goodies is this reel that our good friend Karl Philips provided. I’m sure demos are still sent as part of ‘selling’ a new client, but after listening to this 15 minute demo put together by overnight guy […]

QuickChexx: The Rocketman, KFMB-FM San Diego | June, 1975

Gerry Peterson & Mason Dixon, 1170 KCBQ San Diego | September 24, 1977

Mason Dixon, 95.7 WMTX “Mix 96” Clearwater FL | March 1993

Judge for yourself, but is this the same Mason Dixon we hear on KCBQ San Diego from 9/24/77? WMTX has changed frequencies since this was recorded back in 1993, but this does have at least one historical marker – Bill Clinton was […]

Jeff Goodrich, 93.1 WDRQ Detroit | 1972

Contributor Paul Ford sent this in a while back… it’s 1972 and DRQ is airing The Last … Contest. Certainly wasn’t the last contest ever aired on WDRQ, nor anywhere else, but the contest voicers sound the same no matter what station […]
