Curator’s Notes:

And the Hits just keep comin’! Contributor Paul DiMarco apparently has most of the master reels from our friend Ken Gilbert and we’re slowly getting them archived for the ages. Here’s another recording from the master reel. From apparently spring or autumn of 1982 when WDRC-FM was in the middle of its attempt at pure CHR, here’s Ken sounding really fantastic, albeit doing the overnight gig preparing for morning drive. It’s labelled Part 2, because this comes in four parts, part 1 seems to be missing at this time. We’ll find it!

Meantime, enjoy about 20 minutes of Ken Gilbert, scoped, on the Big D when they still played the hits of the day!
