The Real Pete McNeil on KYNO Fresno | 1966

1300 Fresno KYNO

Here’s a suspiciously knockoff sounding Pete McNeil on KYNO Fresno. Interesting that he’s known as The Real Paul McNeil, while in Los Angeles, The Real Don Steele was on 93/KHJ.
KYNO was owned by Eugene Chenault. Prior to 1965, Bill Drake was the programmer here, and his “Boss Radio” format was tested first at KYNO before he imported it to KHJ and other RKO/General-owned stations. By the time of this aircheck, the ‘Drake’ sound was already heard in San Francisco at 610 KFRC, Los Angeles at KHJ and here, as well as KGB San Diego and some others.
