K-Earth 101 KRTH Los Angeles | June 1976

 

 

There was a time when it was common to hear the music of the 1950s on the radio. Back in the 1970s, KRTH Los Angeles was primarily a 50s Oldies station. In 1972, there was a switch to what was then called a “gold” format, featuring older hit songs from the past. At the time, this “oldies” or “nostalgia” format featuring songs from 1955 to 1963 was a novel idea since most stations played current music with only a few older songs mixed in. With the switch in format came a new name, “K-Earth”, named after Earth Day which had debuted to much fanfare 1970. The station was automated, with a generic announcer as the station voice.

(When I originally Posted this, I thought Art Laboe was the jock, but he is only featured on one promotional ad on the aircheck.)
