64 KFI, Eric Chase with Johnny Nash, who formerly didn’t see Diddly…
Eric Chase is another one of those California legends who was heard on so many of the big stations up and down the coast. Perhaps spoken a bit less about than, say, M.G. Kelly, or Robert W. Morgan. But he’s definitely cut from the same cloth.
KFI in 1978 sounds like KHJ’s little brother. Similar formats, but I’d say KFI’s was just a tad more subdued. That would completely change within a couple of years, as into the 1980s, KFI would be the last AM Top 40 standing… and it would have to become louder and more exciting to compete with FM. But that was still a few years off when this was recorded.
Listen for Marv Howard, KFI News, and Bruce Wayne, KFI Traffic.
