KXLR Survey

Charlie Okle, friend of Tommy Riggs, sent in some music surveys from when he (Charlie) was at KXLR, which has been mentioned several times on this blog.  Several KAAY employees came from KXLR, so it seems fitting that we give the latter some exposure here.

This particular survey is from May 25, 1963 and features Charlie as "Steve Scott"...here is his information on how that air name came about:

"I'm the Steve Scott on the May 25, 1963 sheet. The name was derived from nighttime John Scott (Gary Weir) who left for KATV channel 7, and Tommy Riggs' brother Steve. Hence "Steve Scott". I only worked there for about 2 months...."

Thanks to Charlie Okle...there's more to come later!
