Cavalcade of Hits – The “Pre-Boss Radio” KHJ Los Angeles | 1965
Among the many tapes laying around the airchexx studio is one Fuji DR 90 cassette, most of which has already been posted. On side 1, the first 30 minutes or so is a soon to be posted aircheck of Steve Jay on 1360 KGB San Diego. Next, sandwiched in between that and the historic format change to “Boss Radio”, is an interesting two minutes of Pre-Boss radio KHJ, with it’s “Cavalcade of Hits”. Its too short to identify the announcer or the date, and frankly, not having lived in Los Angeles nor being one who remembers much firsthand of that era, I know virtually nothing about this recording.
You’ll hear a bit of a song, a long weather forecast, and the beginning of a full Newscast, with an old news sounder I’ve never heard before. Someone out there knows a whole lot more about this than I do, and comments are highly encouraged!
