Good morning all over your body…!
Knowing virtually nothing of radio in Stockton, California, it took a bit of poking around to get the history of this radio station. First off, there is nothing that I can describe about this station that isn’t outlined in fairly great detail at the station’s tribute website, //www.kjoy1280.com.
A word about the tape quality. Overall, pretty good. It was received, however, recorded off-speed. I had to adjust for a recording that sounded a few semitones too high (and too fast as well). All fixed, however, I’m not 100% satisfied that this was the correct speed. Close, but as close as I could get it without it going too low and dragging. So, that, and a *little* processing to bring it up to decent quality.
Those who know, please comment on the station, format and jocks in this era of the late 1970s. I’d guess sometime 1978 based upon the hits.
