Contributor Daniel Coulombe submitted this 8:45 scope of KC-101 as an unscoped 30 minute tape which we’ve been holding on to for a few years now. We know nothing about the jock, “Big” Rich Baker, but he comes across as pretty laid back. In fact, this recording shows a KC101 that seems more like an Adult Contemporary station than CHR. We’ll chalk that up to the year in music 1981, which was very soft rock oriented at nearly all the major stations. In our opinion, perhaps so much so that it helped put the whammy on AM Top 40 as a format, since there was little to be excited about.

We can’t nail down an exact date. There are others who probably can get close. Be sure to leave your comments below.
