Jay Coffey, “Top of Pops Weekend”; KRTH K-Earth 101 Los Angeles | November 8, 1986
From the radio station that used the same jingle for over 30 years! Here’s a very capable Jay Coffey cruising through the year 1964 as K-Earth presents a “Top of Pops” Weekend!
This is a very clean recording. Some white noise is present, so, this could have been recorded at some distance from Los Angeles. Otherwise, the quality is good.
This is Oldies radio, really at the beginnings of it’s trek to the monster L.A. station that it is today! The station is what you’d term mis-imaged as “Classic Rock & Roll” (as opposed to “Classic Rock”?). On this recording, they DON’T say OLDIES!
This is scoped, but you do get a lot of Jay Coffey and plenty of Southern California commercials which aired in the Fall of 1986 – in two stop-sets.
