Composite: 1580 AM Stereo KDAY Santa Monica/Los Angeles | 1989
Contributed by Jeffrey James Holland on CD, here’s one we know virtually nothing about. KDAY was a somewhat legendary Top 40 station in the 60s and 70s, but here in 1989 it’s an Urban station playing mainly rap and a few slow jams. There’s three jocks highlighted along with the stop sets with ads tailored to the African American community.
Not sure how popular the station was in ’89, but it is notable that they were promoting themselves as an AM Stereo station. We give them extra credit for that!
If you know the details of this or any KDAY broadcast from that time period, we’d appreciate your comments below.
