Rich “Brother” Robbin on KCBQ San Diego | December, 1973

1170 San Diego, KCBQ

Who woulda thought that in 1973 AM Top 40 would sound this good! Rich Brother Robin could open a university on how to do high-energy radio. Perhaps he should… the former WSRR (now WKIM) Memphis PD and creator of the Classic Hits oldies format sounded awesome in his prime!

Anyway, at just over seven minutes, learn what ‘high-energy’ top 40 really was. KCBQ was known for it’s shotgun approach (to borrow Tom Kelly’s monniker), and here – KCBQ is at the TOP of it’s game!
