Gene Autrey’s Golden West Broadcasting owned some impressive radio stations up and down the west coast from the early 1950s to the early 1990s.
I worked for one of their Portland stations for ten months and can attest they were a first class operation from the company retreats in Palm Springs to big budget promotions.
This August 1979 Billboard article gives you an overview.
During Michael O’Shea first and only visit with me in Portland I remember him telling me that he knew very little about Album Oriented Rock radio and would trust my decisions. Later, of course, I worked with him again at KJR-FM where he was general manager of the three New Century Media stations. I can tell you it was quite an unique and pleasant experience working for a GM who came from programing.
