A Day At KAAY #13, May 18, 1971

"Back to the Bible, back to the Bible...."

We have reached the very last episode of Pat Walsh's archive of KAAY's May 18, 1971 broadcast.

This is the religious segment that was on Jonnie King's shift; this audio segment runs from 6:30 to 7:20 PM.

Again, as mentioned before, certain radio experts said KAAY's varied format wouldn't work.  This was proven to be wrong over and over.  Top 40, some country music, older music from the '50s and '60s, Marvin Vines' Farm Report and the religious blog all worked together and folks rarely tuned away from KAAY at all during the day.  Only when FM became popular did KAAY's AM broadcasts wane and the station was sold in 1985 to a religious interest.

(or stream/download here from the archive page)

Remember the great tune, "Turn Your Radio On"?  I wonder how many folks listened to radio with the likes of my old Philco here:

My sincere thanks to Russell Wells for preserving and contributing these valuable contributions that made up "A Day At KAAY"!   Also my gratitude for Dave S. for his valuable time loading and linking the audio; our library continues to grow and is larger than we ever expected!  May it continue to grow beyond everyone's wildest expectations!

If YOU have some audio to contribute, as well as any memorabelia of any type, it is ALL important!  Please contact me at my e-mail address below to make arrangements to have YOUR contribution(s) posted here!
