KFMB-FM “B-100” San Diego – A Year of Better Boogie | April 9-13, 1976

Description by Contributor Mal Vincent:

KFMB-FM San Diego aired a Beautiful Music format during the 1960s thru the early 1970s. In March of 1976, the format changed to Top 40. This aircheck is the KFMB-FM, (B-100) One-Year Anniversary celebration of airing “Better Boogie”. For 100 hours (April 9 thru April 13), the station ran commercial free. If you’re a west coast radio fan, you’ll hear many familiar names in their on-air line up. This aircheck is a flashback to the days when radio listening was fun! B-100 had the finest and zaniest band of DJs ever comprised. As of 2010, KFMB-FM is “Jack-FM” 100.7 FM

    Typo…B-100 signed on in March 1975.

    This is the first birthday in 1976. On both occasions, PD Bobby Rich did 100 hours commercial-free and brought in a bunch of L.A. and San Diego jocks to do an hour or two each.

    Nine months after this, Jimi Foxx took Willie B., Rich Brother Robbin, Chuck Browning and Beaver Cleaver up to L.A. to launch KTNQ, which was never as much fun as B-100.

    That was great to hear this wonderful Air Check, in fact The Fox had me record the entire 100 Hours. We were the best radio station in San Diego and the very best radio people in the business, and I was a part of it.

  3. wow it must of been fun to be a part of this air check, some great bits from the jocks,you know they were having a blast
    I wish radio still had that flair and was fun to work in now its just work and no frills or thrills,however a few chills in the bis and no persanality in the announcers and no more live radio it sucks………….
