Composite: 1090 KING Seattle | 1977
Contributor Mike Donovan sent in a package a few years ago that we’re still posting from. Here’s a 5 minute scope of what was evidently a station demo. The file we saved back when we got this included other Seattle-area radio stations which will post on this site shortly.
We get to hear three superb jocks here, along with a generous dose of station jingles from TM Century’s “You” package which RKO General made substantial use of at 93/KHJ Los Angeles and 68 WRKO Boston, along with other stations around the U.S. First off, our first recording featuring Rob Conrad. Anyone know him? You’ll hear a couple of breaks, then Dan Foley. He’s another guy I’ve never heard before but he fits right in! The recording ends with Andy Barber, whom we have featured at KTNQ “Ten-Q” Los Angeles (which you can hear via this link)
After listening to this, you have to ask yourself: Why didn’t this station bury crosstown KJR? Somebody knows the answer.
