We Inturrupt This Series For...

...goodies from Kevin Thornton!  Since we still have a little football season left, and because of the results of the latest Arkansas/Texas game, Kevin sent these bumper stickers along for us to enjoy!

As per his words: "Hey Bud, thought you and the readers of the Mighty 1090 blog would like these "Beat Texas" stickers from the radio station circa early 1980s(?). Kevin Thornton"

You betcha, Kevin!

Thanks, Kevin!!!  Any and all pictures, memorabilia, etc. is graciously accepted for addition to the blog for the enjoyment of all KAAY/Beaker Street fans!  Thank you, Kevin!  Bud S (

Beaker Street 4/13/1971 Part A

And we continue with Clyde Clifford and Beaker Street into 1971!  We thought it was high time (no pun intended!) that we brought back some post from A. J. Lindsey's blog (  When we got this blog going, I thought it was too early to reproduce any postings from A. J.'s blog, because it might produce boring repetition.  Now, seemingly, this blog is in the forefront and it has been several years since many of us found his blog- and it has been seven years for me personally, that I've contributed to it.

Thanks to computer guru and professor Dave Schmidt, and his love for the station, he was able to capture what we needed before the players "broke" on A. J.'s blog; there is still some active players there, but you have to dig for the link.  However, through Dave's computer knowhow and Greg Barman's audio and computer expertise, these recordings come back to life!

I cannot tell you how much I depend on these guys- they have been a Godsend to me and us KAAY/Beaker Street enthusiasts.  David B. Treadway (who I call "The Voice Of Arkansas") once said, that the guy behind the mic gets all the credit- or the blame- but it's the people in the background who are the real thank you, Dave and Greg!

ONWARD!  The audio came to us in three parts, so we'll present them as such.  I forget the original presenter, so, if you recognize this, please leave us a comment- we are thankful for each and every aircheck and studio copy that comes our way!

Next, Part B!

April 3, 1971 Beaker Street Mistakenly Marked "4/13/71"

I found another Beaker Street in the "A. J. archives" that Dave S. recovered...thought we'd share it with you!

This is mismarked "4/13/14", but is really from about April 3, 1971.  There was mention somewhere that there was a mismarked aircheck on the 13th- this must be it.  Greg Barman noticed that there was an Alice Cooper concert slated for April 10 advertised, so it couldn't be 4/13...and, a little over 22 minutes into the aircheck, it changed to a different, we don't have a date for the ending part of this aircheck....

I don't know why, but I enjoy this particular aircheck...must be the music selections.

Thanks, Greg & Dave!
