Blue in the Morning, 99.7 KYUU San Francisco | August 9, 1988
After the demise of KFRC two years earlier, CHR was left only to the FM band, and this station, KYUU. Here’s a long aircheck of Blue in the Morning, with all the essential elements of modern morning shows… news, traffic, weather, entertainment reports and the like. It’s mostly information for the first one third of this scope, then the hits really start rolling (we’re assuming in the 9am hour).
We know nothing about Mr. Blue other than this sounds like a pretty run of the mill morning show you’d hear in any other city in the late 80s…. we’ll give the programmer this: there ARE a few dead segues and some decent imaging, but other than that, no jingles and after the informational portion of the morning show, it’s pretty dead apart from the hits from 1988. Still, its one of the few rare non KFRC San Francisco airchecks, and we’re sure someone out there remembers this station.
Audio is a bit grainy, this is a second generation recording that someone encoded at a lower bitrate, but it’s pretty good beyond that.
