Sounding suspiciously like it was recorded in 1976 or 77, KATY is genuinely FUN! Contributor Ron Kay fills us in:
The whole idea was building a station that was very pleasant and fun to listen to…….each of us….had lattitude to mix the music on the fly from a controlled library…as long as the records fit the categories on the rotation hot clock.
It was never a case of “let’s be funny”…..it was always….”let’s have a fun”.
Note; Our news guy…Dennis Michael (aka Cosmo) went on to produce the popular syndicated “Hollywood Minute” among other things.
Our other news guy; Rick DeBruhle went onto do color commentary on the cable Mecum auto auction show, among other accomplishments.
Kenny West (Ken McDavid) did 6 to midnight, I did afternoon drive, Larry did mid days and Steve was morning drive.
Today, the station airs a Soft AC format under the call letters KYNS, branded as “B93.7”. It was a former All-News station, and liberal “Progressive Talk” from the now defunct Air America radio network before that.
