Kid Corona / Jason Garrett Phoenix Composite | 1991-1995
Sent in by Mr. Garrett himself, he and Kid Corona are obviously one in the same, heard here doing CHR and Oldies in one of our rare Phoenix market presentations.
Kid Corona first hit the Phoenix nighttime airwaves in 1991 on Edens’ KOY-FM; Y-95 as part of an all-star line up that included Bruce Kelly, Jackie West and Steve Goddard. After winning the PM ratings battle, Corona moved briefly to the legendary KOOL-FM 94.5 as Jason Garrett. A short time later he returned to CHR as Kid Corona on KKFR-FM; Power 92 where he dominated the nighttime ratings until 1994. One year later, he produced and hosted, “70s Saturday Night with Jason Garrett” at Nationwide-owned KVRY; Variety 104.7. The 4-hour weekly program was a disco parody, “…broadcasting live on the Polyester Radio Network (PRN).” The public relations and ratings success of that show lasted for two more years until 1996 when KVRY flipped formats and returned to its heritage KZZP calls. Steve Elliott was PD.
Its scoped and short, but definitely showcases some great talent in this early to mid 90s composite. Thanks, Jason!
