Dick Drury, KGB San Diego | November, 1963

Here’s one of the old KGB… you gotta go way back to hear cigarette commercials and those old jingles which all seemed to be sung to a large brass orchestra. It’s the Pre-Drake era at San Diego’s KGB, back when music radio meant much more jock talk!

Really, gang, 1963 was essentially just past the dawn of top 40 radio as we know it today. See if you can compare ANY of the on air methods and slogans used then with something you hear today. Perhaps you may want to use this to teach young people about the roots of their music on iPhones… well, this was it in a very real sense.
