98.7 FM Dallas KNUS Karl Ireland KLUV

Frankly, when this posted, your webmaster falsely assumed this was a big KNUS promo. Alas, the person who says he created this piece contacted us to set the record straight. Apparently this was *NOT* used on the air. Here’s what creator Bob Buchanan says about it:

the roundup was NOT an on-air promo. it was something i created and voiced in an after hours production session. it was in response to the rats that had died in the mclenden theater/studios over the weekend when exterminators put out poison.

by the way, it was done in 1978…not 79…while i had a brief stop at knus. i returned to kvil as ops manager until late 79.

We stand corrected. But… GREAT PIECE!

  1. i am the creator and voice of this promo…it was never aired. this was a joke because of the odor created when the exterminator left poison out for the rats that ran through the old theater/studio. bart mclenden actually wanted us to use it on the air. we never did!

    1. What creativity! This is one of my favorite pieces on the site and, well, yes maybe you guys should have aired it! Maybe make a whole station promo and contest out of it!!
