Steve Jay, 1360 KGB San Diego | April 8, 1965
…From the station that’s movin’ on up KGB #1!!
Somehow, they all claimed to be number one! As part of the jock patter, anyway!
Here’s someone we haven’t featured yet. Steve Jay sounds typical of the way most Deejays sounded in 1965, or so that’s what most of us remember! At twelve minutes in length, this re-mastered tape recording highlights one of the legendary stations in California history. Strangely enough, while it seems that there are a lot of recordings of other big California stations from this era, such as 93 KHJ Los Angeles, and 610 KFRC San Francisco, there don’t seem to be many recordings from KGB. Regardless, we think you’ll enjoy this slice of Radio History!
