7 thoughts on “Composite: 610 KFRC San Francisco | August 15, 1983

  1. I was sad to hear that Jack Armstrong had passed last week. Hope he’s enjoying it up there with Dr. Don et al.

  2. I agree, Steve. I always liked KFRC going back to the days when Bill Drake was in charge but this scoped aircheck of what they sounded like in 1983 is the best.

    The station was tight and when you listened, you couldn’t turn it off because you might miss something worth hearing through the music and the jocks. KFRC was smoking in 83.

    You could hear the influence of Dr. Don. I guess his show was the most successful and whoever was programming them wanted people that could each sound like the doctor in their own way.

    It’s no wonder the big 610 was able to hang on for a few more years playing the hits and bringing incredible talent to San Francisco.

  3. Jayne Dornacker-That is a name from the past. I remember the accident that took her life in the “N” copter back in October 1986. I was working in Jersey at the time having started a new job only a month earlier and listening in the car. Thirty years ago…

  4. So….Harry Nelson and Bill Lee are among the tags for this exhibit, but we don’t hear them in this aircheck?

    Of course, we couldn’t, because KFRC fired Bill Lee in July of 1983, and Harry had left some weeks before to be PD of KKFM in Fargo.
