Format Change from Top 40 to Country, 93KHJ Los Angeles | November 7, 1980

It was more than a radio station… It was a big part of Southern California in the 1960s & 70s. 93 KHJ “Boss Radio” became a hit music station in May 1965. Boss Radio was king. The station’s roster of DJs read like an all-star list, with the likes of such talent as Robert W. Morgan, Charlie Tuna, The Real Don Steele, Johnny Williams, Machine Gun Kelly, Bobby Tripp, Mark Elliott, Bill Wade, Bobby Ocean, Humble Harve, Jerry Butler and others. KHJ continued to crank out the hits in the 1970s, but the rise of FM was having an impact on the station. By the end of the 1970s the once mighty KHJ was a shadow of its former self. At 9 PM on November 7, 1980, the end finally came, as KHJ switched over to a country music format. This aircheck features the end of the Top 40 era of KHJ, with the History Of Rock & Roll, and the launch of Country 93 KHJ, with the 93 KHJ “We All Grew Up To Be Cowboys” jingle.
