I had completely forgot about this “experiment” at KZOK AM in 1989. Other than making this tape I wasn’t paying too much attention; I was over at KOMO AM-1000 at the time. It was obviously an automated syndicate program of mostly ’50s oldies with some ’60s tunes that fit (Patti Drew, Ronettes) and some that didn’t (Union Gap). I probably taped the station one day in October 1989 because I liked the music. Of course the music was unique because even in the late ’80s it wasn’t very viable commercially. I am guessing this format, a year after KJET’s demise, didn’t last long. I couldn’t tell you what came next.
