Prescott on KNRK?! What a joke and ruining of a very good show. Not only

was he a guest after he got canned from KUFO (and rightly so) he then

joins KNRK. Then he takes over the show. Now there are no morning shows

that play good music and have a great personality. Prescott sux and

can't even hold a candle to Mike and Daria - and he has no taste in

music. He should be lost somewhere on A.M. and doesn't belong with the

big boys on F.M. Thank God for CD's and news. If anyone else feels this

way write KNRK (go to

I still can't believe Earth 105 is gone. I listened to Earth more than any

other station. They were the only station that still played rock in the

mornings. I hate listening to a bunch of crappy talk in the morning. I want my

rock 'n' roll to get me going while I get ready for work !!!!!! This totally

sucks and so does Rosie's 105. I hope someone has the good sense to start a

station with pure rock 'n' roll with NO annoying senseless talk.

Okay - it's too bad that Prescott got replaced by Howard Stern. Who

cares what's going on in New York anyway. But why did he have to ruin

the best station in town? Why did he have to move in on Mike and Daria

at KNRK? The reason I - and many others - didn't listen to Prescott on

101 was because he's so immature and not even funny. Now that's 3

morning radio shows that are off my list (92.3, 101.1, 94.7). At least

there are two half way decent ones left - 107.5 (as long as the hosts

don't try to be funny) and 105.1 (yes, I like the new format of 105.1

though I liked the old format better). Guess I'll get out the CDs. Who

needs radio anyway?

Just wondering if you folks might be able to shed some

light as to why KKRH, 105.1 has changed format in the last

week, without any warning. Quite a few folks are really

bummed, for lack of a better term, and just wondering

what happened. Thank you for your time and possible insight.

This is a comment regarding KEWS AM 620 news channel in Portland.

I am a native of India, currently working as an engineer in Beaverton. I

found the news channel's asinine talk about India's nuclear tests very


The people at the radio station do not have any idea about what they are

talking/saying. They think it's a given right to criticize anyone whom

they do not like.

Impersonating Appu is nothing but outrageous, these guys do not know

anything about our country or culture.

I will never listen to 620 again, the channel is a disgrace to the city

of Portland.

Where the hell did the radio station go? The one I was listening to on

the way to work this morning? Earth 105! I like all kinds of music, BUT

whoever bought and killed the best station in Portland can jump off the

bridge, just like the poor soul who jumped into 405 on Friday in rush

hour and killed himself. In fact, maybe he did it because some asshole

took his music away. This is the day the music died.

Well, I just turned the BS new station back on to show my wife and they

were playing some classic Def Leppard, which is cool, but they were

playing total CRAP all afternoon. What gives? I want Earth Back!!

Do you know what happened?

For the past couple of editions my "FM Atlas" has featured a dial history of

Portland FM radio--from 1949 through 1997. It mentions stations that have

deleted, left the air and then returned, or construction permits that failed

to materialize, as well as stations currently on the air, along with format

and slogan information. Most of the information is in table format with

paragraph-formatted information filling most of the remainder of pages 222-223

in the book.

Portland is the only market to be included in this national publication,

although several other market histories exist in my database. The FM Atlas is

a print publication, 224 pp., with maps and directories listing call letters,

frequency, whether or not a station has stereo, formats and other information.

The current, 17th ed. is $18.50 from "FM Atlas," PO Box 336, Esko MN

55733-9413. I sent Pete Schulberg of the Oregonian a blurb about the book but

he has not chosen to mention it in his column.

offered by each station in the last 6 months. Do you have info from

Arbitron about how these programs compare to each other? Are you planning

Hey, I like the site alot! Thanks for putting it up.

I just wanted to thank KOTK for putting Dr. Toni on head to head against

that wich Dr. Laura, and for putting Imus on head to head with Stern, and

The Fat One. How are the ratings shaking out anyway? I would hope that Dr.

Toni and Imus are kicking a**.

One other thing. I was disappointed that KOTK took off Adrian Byrd on

Saturdays in favor of those movie dorks they have one now. Some friends and

I played "radio host" when I was in the 4th grade, and we were funnier and

more professional than these guys. Sure, there's Jim Jorgenson's financial

show on Sunday, but Adrian was much more friendly.

Hey KOTK-- bring Adrian back!

Otherwise I love the station.

here in New Zealand, on 25.950 MHz. It plays great music and I'd like

to send the station a reception report and obtain details about their

Great page. Having worked in broadcasting in Seattle -- KOL and KVI --

in the 60s and 70s, your airchecks caught my attention.

Now... for what it's worth....

Back in the 50s, the trip from Seattle to Portland on old 99 was an


event. My family made the trip periodically to visit my grandparents in


On the way out of Portland, I remember a huge sign -- painted on the

side of a building -- very close to the highway.Seems to me it featured

giant bright red lips on a yellow background, and the words "Portland

Loves KISN!"

Now that I'm in my 50s, my memories of the 50s aren't all that vivid,

but I'll throw this in ... as I said... for what it's worth.

Look forward to the KISN airchecks. Still keep in touch with Tom Murphy

Since Bill is being "forced" out by either the Blazers, or Jacor (which I

work for, and I tend to believe it's the Blazers...) could you get some

great clips from his days with the Blazers (could be the days from KYTE

970, KEX or KGW)... Also, I am a big hockey fan.. Any chance some clips

from either the old Buckaroos (if I remember, it was Bill Anderson on KOIN

97 or 1520 KYXI) and Cliff Zhauner from the KYXI days could be included??

I think one of the best stations in Portland right now is KPAM (860 am). They

have good music, and great people as DJ's. The only problem is that it

doesn't sound as clear as the FM stations. I wish that KPAM could be on an FM

station. Is it cheaper to be on AM or something?

A copy of a letter I sent to Rush LimbaughRush;

I have a lot of respect for you (except for your consistent emphasis

on cigars, which to me are totally offensive and smell worse than

burning manure). Your opinions are 99% right on and I wish more

Liberals would take the time to listen to you.

On our local station KEWS you do a short commercial for their

late afternoon talk show host, Bill Gallagher. I consider this comparable

to Peggy Fleming promoting Tanya Harding.

Bill Gallagher is rude to his callers when they disagree with him. When

a caller makes a statement which may not be backed up with

irrefutable fact, Bill has a sneering chuckle which makes the caller

feel embarrassed. Or if someone states an opinion based on a piece

of information they have heard, Bill will not accept it unless they

give him chapter and verse where they heard it. In fact he will

nag at them: "Give me the facts! Where are the facts?'

Beside Bill Gallagher you are the epitome of sophistication and

courtesy. It's too bad you have to promote a person of his ilk.

...especially on Sundays. I like to listen to Online Today With David

Lawrence. AM620 has been carrying the show since the days when they

were KOTK. Nowadays, it seems they prefer to air reruns of the

loud-mouthed one (Rush, ok?) until noon, delaying the 1st hour of Online

Today. Still, not too bad. I get to hear the whole show eventually...

The last two weeks, however, the goofy bastards have simply dropped the

tape-delay, aired only the second hour of the program, and then gone to

"David Essel Alive" an hour early. Hey! I'm feeling kind of

short-changed, here! Essel is okay, but I want my geek fix, allright?

And who the hell trained Roger Pike? This local bozo at KEWS can't even

keep the name of the program or the name of the host straight. Some

weeks, it's "Online with David Lawrence". Other times, it's "America

Online with David Essel". I must admit, I have heard him get it right

at least ONCE. Often as not, Pike will lead in to Essel's program by

telling us more of "Online Today" is coming up.

Yeah, I know, good help is hard to find. Must be, if KEWS is actually

paying Roger Pike to show up for work.

When the hell is this country going to wise-up to the insideousness of the

Telecommunications Act of 1994? Once again the rich get richer at the

expense of the common citizens--this time with the demise of 2 long-time

Portland Personalities-Prescott and Anchetta.

Do you realize that only 3 (THREE!) corporations own the MAJORITY OF RADIO

STATIONS IN PORTLAND? Where's Free Enterprise come into play? It's been

abolished because of this act. And who suffers? YOU AND I!

It's time to get as mad as hell and write your Sentators and

Representatives and tell them to BUST UP THE MONOPOLY that has been created

by the Telecommunications Act. Otherwise you can kiss locally controlled,

locally centered radio goodbye forever. And don't forget all those PROFITS

aren't being re-invested here--hell no! They're being spent out of state.

Just look at the radio ownership pages and you'll see.

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. You're seeing that practiced in radio

every day here in Portland, Oregon. And if you listen to radio, you'd

better damn well care--because now a very few large corporations in this

country are going to feed you the bullshit they want you to hear and

believe---no more objectivity no more creativity, no more broadcasting in

the public's interest---now it's all a profit game. And that's a sin, more

than shame!

he is all the way back in NYC. I liked the traffic, weather, news, and

What about the time slot? 3am-10am? From 3-6 is live and the last 4

I am a 28 year old female and I am thoroughly disappointed in the new

format of 95.5 fm. for the last year I have listened to Scottie and

Marie in the morning, they were entertaining but not stupid, they

reported unbiased news and played a great mix of music. I always looked

forward to the morning drive getting me through the week, and Aloha

Friday was a great way to start the weekend. The new format is

excessively boring, sounds like an AM station on FM radio.

Unfortunately, now I have to turn the dial to Z100 of which the DJ's bug

me to no end, but the music is a tad more uplifting than James Taylor in

the morning. I miss the 95.5 I was used of.

Dear Mr. Rusk,

You sent the following to the Portland Radio Guide:

> ...while many Portland area stations have boosted to 50,000 watts

> after coming on the air, the new KPAM (880 kHz) is the first station

> in Portland to ever sign on with an initial authorization of 50,000.

> Do you know if this is true?

I think you are correct. Two great information sources are:

1) Jeff Miller's Broadcasting History Collection, which contains many

old station lists, at

2) Old copies of the Oregon Blue Book at most Oregon Libraries. They

started listing broadcast stations in the 1951-52 edition.

Among the current 50,000 watt stations in the Portland area, the 1951-52

Oregon Blue Book lists the following:

KEX 1190 50,000w

KGON 1230 250w, Oregon City (now KFXX 1520)

KWJJ 1080 10,000w (now KOTK)

KXL 750 10,000w

The 57-58 Blue Book shows KGON at 1520 with 10,000 watts.

KEX appears to be Portland's, and Oregon's first 50Kw station. However,

a Department of Commerce radio list from 1927, found at Jeff Miller's

website, shows KEX at 1250 with 2,500 watts. Therefore, KPAM would be

the first to be 50Kw at original sign-on.

Very few pre-WWII stations are still on their original frequencies, none

in Portland.

Is there any chance AM620 KEWS Radio will add more locally produced talk

programming during the week?

It would be helpful if you could place the exact location (Lat. & Long.)

of Transmitter locations of listed stations. This data sould be

accessible from FCC files. I can't seem to find same and if I could

find it it would be on a station to station basis and not compiled

for Portland, Or. Would be helpful in tracking down intermod problems.

I'd suggest that KXL is local ownership (Les Smith). You might want to

call Tim M.

Why don't you list under Portland Radio Ownership, Crawford Broadcasting

Company, which ownes two 5,000 watts stations, AM 1330 KKPZ (K-Praise),

AM 1290 KKSL and the new 10,000 watts station, AM 1640 KKJY (K-Joy),

very popular within the Portland/Vancouver metro area.

For more information, call James Autry at 242-

"Portland's First News" is no longer anchored by Neal Penland. He is a

full-time street reporter. (Darn good at it, I might add.) You do a

great job with this site. Thanks.

I am an Oregon writer for the trade paper Radio World and am trying to

verify a tidbit of info. It is my understanding that while many

Portland area stations have boosted to 50,000 watts after coming on the

air, the new KPAM (880 kHz) is the first station in Portland to ever

sign on with an initial authorization of 50,000.

Do you know if this is true?

Why are we getting reruns of Joy Browne at night? I really get tired of

hearing the same conversations. Either she is no longer on the air or you

run her program longer than she is actually on and have to repeat her


So what is going on.

It looks as if Earth 105 does not have a e-mail site.

I am wondering why that station continues to play the same tunes everyday and

why they dont play other pieces of music by the same groups.Coming from SF Bay

Area where we have a choice it is quite strange to hear the same songs

everyday when everyone knows that Rock and Roll has a distinct history of

music that is important to the world.I have yet to hear "White Rabbit" or "We

Built This City" by the Starship for a example. Is that station programed to

play the same song over and over again? Reminds me of the days of Payola in

the 50's!

Newly posted on - a Real Don Steele retrospective

including 10 mins. of scoped check from KISN. Good quality, several KISN

jings, part of an old Franz bread spot. Would make a great addition to your

PDX old radio archives if you can get clearance.

I've enjoyed your site - keep it up!

Hey All!

Cool web page! Well, I am the queen of media now, (in my own head anyway,

LOL) now that I bought the old KKEY radio station, things will be moving ahead

at a rapid clip!

We painted the walls, put in clean, new carpeting, (the place is smelling

pretty good!) and will be installing new equipment in the next week. Looks

like our current vintage equipment, (pre 1960 for you radio philes) may be

finding its final resting place in the Portland advertising museum. All in

all, it's gonna be pretty exciting.

More change is on the way, I'll keep you posted, but right now I have to

figure out where I put that lysol......

I sure enjoyed my first visit to the Portland Radio Guide web site.

Congratulations on producing such a great site.

I'm trying to get in touch with a former (?) Portland radio personality -

Paul Hanson. Do you know where he is these days?

Thanks in advance for your reply, Mark

I found in the fcc database that KFXX 1520 raised their nightime power from

10,000watts to 15,000 watts.

I really enjoy KKSN morning show . I feel bad that the mocho men are

so far behind the other gender, the femails. Don"t give up hope you

men . we are still vary much wanted and needed by the ladies. We have

to keep them continue thinking that we are fighting real hard to be

smarter than them so they will always feel sorry for us even though we

know that we have more going on upstairs than they'll ever know.

I listen to your show while working as a US West installer repairman

daily. You guys and gals help make my days fulfilled and joyful.

Pease play the beep beep song at a perfectly placed time in the near

future. Could you play some of Ray Stevens too?

Hey all you Portland talk show freaks, you have to tune in to K-news on

Saturdays from 3:00 to 6:00 PM for HANDEL on the LAW. I know if you

have a life, Saturday evening is a busy time but, I think you find this

show as entertaining as Dr. Laura except with a legal twist! Bill Handel

is a Chicano/Jew Attorney with a wonderful sense of humor. I wish him

luck as he is apparently "small potatoes" just starting to pick up

stations nationally. K-news, please hang onto this guy! C.Anderson

I wonder if you know, or maybe Craig at KISN...What is the longest period of

time a station in the Portland metro area was owned and operated by the same


The reason I ask is somewhat self serving...KKEY, Portland, was owned and

operated by the Weagant family from July 4th, 1954 to December 31st

1997...although I had nothing to do with the station since 1987.

43 years, that might be a record.

My wife and I enjoyed Deal Edell and really miss hearing him locally.

While at the coast the last few days, we find that he is on KNPT in

Newport where he has been for some time. Whom would I best contact to

make known our interest in having his program available locally again?

Thanks for any ideas you can give us.

To: Program Manager

You took off 3 of my favorite shows: Hightower, Mason, For the People by

Chuck Harder. Now you're just like any other boring talk station. I'll

look around to find another station to carry Chuch Harder and put an ad

in the Oregonian to show where he'll be found. Harder is in my opinion

the most informative program in the US containing real uncut news. What

on earth could you be thinking off? You made a bad move and now you're

going to loose a lot of customers.
