Old KTHS Shows?

Found in my e-mail box today (5/26/15):

"I used to listen to KTHS around 10 p.m. when the clear channels kicked in.  I lived in west central Minnesota in the mid-50’s.  There was a record salesman who called himself “Gatemouth (with the laughin’ face).”  He would say “The 78’s are the big record with the little hole and the 45’s are the little record with the big hole.”  This was our first exposure to rock n’ roll and we loved it.  The frequency was near to KMOX in St. Louis so I’d catch a Cardinals game while I waited for Gatemouth.  I have fond memories of those days and always wondered what his name was, hearing about Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, and other greats.  Wonderful record specials!  I’d appreciate any links to information about those old shows.  Thanks!

Folks, we here at the Mighty 1090 KAAY Blog would also like any links & info regarding the predecessor to KAAY!  Can anyone help John, please?
