Chris Anderson, 690 XETRA Tijuana, Mexico | 1984

Advertisement

Contributor Chris Anderson sent in this short scope of himself at the legendary “Mighty 690”. Marketed back in the music days to Los Angeles (and San Diego), this super-powered AM station was in the last days of it’s Top 40 format and would flip to Oldies as ’69 Extra Gold’ later in 1984. I’m guessing July or August, as I was attending the U.S. Navy’s Radioman “A” School in San Diego at the time and remember the flip, which happened over a weekend.

Chris sounds great here on 690. He was probably overjoyed at knowing that some 10 million people could listen in if they all tuned to 690 at once. But just imagine living in Tijuana close to the transmitter – the deejays voices probably could be heard on people’s kitchen appliances…

    Yes it was, Tony. XETRA was also the first AM stereo station. Some would say it was the first top 40 station, but that’s subject for debate.
