KNUS 99 – 98.7 to be exact, was McLendon’s FM powerhouse. Originally slated to be an all-news station, and almost never to be because Gordon McLendon almost sold it in the 60s, KNUS turned out to be the SECOND successful Top 40 station, right behind (and later surpassing) sister KLIF 1190.
Here’s two great jocks doing Top 40 in a style imitated by much of the RKO chain (NOT the other way around) throughout the 70s. It’s GREAT radio – no reverb, plenty of personality and some big contests for the time period.
AND NOW THIS MESSAGE
Each month, we ask for donations to support our online museum. It’s an ongoing request, because only a few ever donate, despite an audience in the thousands every day. Won’t you please help out and chip in? It goes to a worthy cause, helping to keep these classic radio recordings online and free to the user. Airchexx is a user-supported but free historical and educational website that also provides thousands of hours of listening enjoyment every day. You can make a voluntary, monthly contribution below, or look in the sidebar to the right for a link to make a one-time donation to help us defray costs. Thank you.
