Just yanking your chain a bit mate,
That's what makes your station so cool Dave, it is a Real Radio Station not
afraid to play anything. :))
Problem is in the valley where I live I don't think I can get the signal, I
have the same problem with KKSF and KPFA I do now however get a good signal
from KBAY since they now call it Walnut Creek/San Francisco. I must have missed
something, did they by the local station in WC and change it to KBAY when I
was not looking or listening?
I used to love to wake up on Sunday mornings and hear the German Polka bands
on KBAY, at least I think it was KBAY seems it was out of San Jose at that
Or I might just be losing it altogether and have them confused with another
station. When you have been around here as long as I have and seen all your
favorite stations change formats several times it gets hard to keep up with it.
I started with Emperor Gene Nelsen and KEWB, who made me a STAR the first
time, :)) later KNEW country and I have no idea what happened to it after that.
I spent an evening back there where it all started with listmate Bob Williams
a couple of weeks ago. Whew, brought back a lot of memories that the 1/2
pint Sloe Gin and Coca Cola did not wipe out. :))
Not to mention all the changes at KFRC since the days of Bobby Mitchell &
Tom Donahue, and KYA. and KSOL and KDIA.
Heck none of these guys ever even heard of OKOM, :)) But in those days
neither had I.
"Born too Late"
Heck I can't even live Fast Die Young and Leave a Beautiful Memory anymore
where did I go wrong??? :)) Well with the average age of my OKOM friends I
guess that is still a possibility, perhaps I can become the James Dean of OKOM
