Composite: 610 KFRC San Francisco | August 15, 1983
..Tomorrow, Jack Armstrong will be Broadcasting in Stereo, so he’ll have a headache in BOTH ears!
Really now, what more could one ask for in a KFRC aircheck? Dr. Don Rose, Jayne Dornacker playing in traffic, laugh tracks to corny jokes and a stack of teeny-bopper records!!! Not to mention Mark McKay, Bobby Ocean and Jack Armstrong each with a stellar performance on this, the mother of all low-powered AM Top 40 stations! It’s V-J Day in San Francisco and Dr. Don tries to make the most of it!
To be sure, this is radio-heaven, with paradise filled with the sounds of mid-1983 hit music. KFRC surely was the dance-track of San Francisco. Restoring this piece of audio ear-candy sure was a joy. Now, from our servers to your ears, a 45 minute scoped dose of monoized AM Stereo with some of the best AM processing ever to grace a Harris transmitter. KFRC was IT!
In OUR opinion, this one aircheck, representing 1983 CHR on a station which in any other city woulda been on FM, shows the tremendous talent and reach of KFRC. It’s probably the very best this station ever sounded, even better than the Boss years of the late 60s. Just how many of our listeners agree, will depend on how many comments this aircheck receives.
