Hi there!

Ya might remember me, I emailed you several months back inquiring about the format change at KXYQ in regard to the Saturday show called "The Morning After Show".

I have been having an argument with my mom over the period of time when KGW (620am) changed from a music format to a talk format...I swear I listened to it when I was a younger girl, but my mom says I wasn’t even born when it was music. Can you help?

Thanks either way!

Merry Christmas!

I find it hard to belive that KKSN is not on the WEB.

I listen to them every morning traveling West out the ‘SUNSET Hwy 26’ going to work and have to change stations from the Zoo exit to Murry Blvd exit to avoid the interferance from some other station.

Doesn’t the FCC control this type of thing?

It is confirmed. Entercom has bought KSLM in Salem and plans to start simulcasting KFXX beginning December 17, 1998. The article was in the 12/16/98 Salem Statesman Journal. This will increase their coverage in the valley, which was lost when they switch frequencies from 1520 to 910am.

Dear staff,

There is a rumor that CBS/Westinghouse can buy McKenzie Broadcasting, Inc. in the forseeible future, like maybe next year. Can the guys like they did when it bought Infinity?

CBS/Westinghouse, also owns stations in Portland and other large cities, will probably have more commercial time 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. The McKenzie guys, Bob Oxarart and John Tilson, probably says that CBS rumored that they will buy McKenzie, which owns only 3 stations, in Eugene, KMGE, KKNU, and KKXO. Maybe Mckenzie or CBS can get more independents like KEUG, KKNX, and maybe the other independents. If CBS buys McKenzie Broadcasting, it would do the same thing for the Portland CBS radio affiliates, it would get the Eugene traffic reports, and maybe more commercial air time, 10 commercials every hour for 24 hours. Could CBS radio expand to more smaller markets like they have brought American Radio Systems and Infinity Broadcasting? Could KLOO-FM and the Jacor guys in Medford be like that?

Tell the guys at CBS Radio Portland and John and Bob about that. We’ll be keeping our eyes for CBS (or probably Jacor) to buy McKenzie Broadcasting in the future. Maybe CBS radio in Eugene. Hope your wishes come true. I’m a radio expert.

I was listening to your radio program between am and am today. There was some different sounding music played for just a short time. The announcer at that time said his wife heard the group and she thought the group was very good. I don’t know the announcers name or the groups name. I thought he said the groups name was "Terry Reilly" or something like that. Could you possible tell me what the name of the group was and the CD if possible?

Thank you,

North and G Gordon Liddy. They also have recently added some local talk hosts

talking Portland issues. You may want to add them to your talk list.

You probably figured this out, but it didn't occur to me when I sent the message yesterday that--since the Vancouver CP is at 105.9, and KKLQ in San Diego was known as Q106--Jacor may call the new station Q106 as well. That is, of course, unless the new call letters are yet another Jacor smokescreen.


WB01682_.gif (1926 bytes)

Monday, November 23, 1998 1:56 PM

I noticed the little tidbit about Jacor's new FM CP now going by the call letters KKLQ. Those were the calls used by one of Jacor's (former?) properties in San Diego. (They had to spin off a few stations there to close the Nationwide deal; Jacor might still own the frequency, but certainly the format-flipping that resulted claimed the life of the old KKLQ [Q106].) Of course, Jacor's been extremely partial towards using the "Mix" moniker. They've flipped basic AC stations in Des Moines (I believe), Cleveland and Cincinnati (I know)--and maybe some other markets--to "Mix". I'm just wondering if the new Vancouver FM will try fighting Rosie 105 in the all-but-"Mix" arena or try something else.

Is any station carrying the "Old Time Radio" shows. I was getting them

on 1150 AM when it was KKEY for a while, till it got dark, then they had

to turn down the power and I lost them. The Old Time Radio network

still lists them as carrying the show.

Is any station doing new productions of this type?

I came to your site to find out who the ABC affiliate was. I didn't

find any sort of listing that gave this information. Did I miss

something? If not you may want to add it. Just a suggestion.

How could you replace Dr. Grant w/ 3hours of Rick Emerson? He is too similar to Tom Leykis in his mentality and Jr. High boy antics. 6hours with these two fellas is a real stretch. (I bet a man made the decision to make the change)

Dr. Toni Grant is getting a real groundswell of support & becoming very popular (Because she is good, qualified, and much better than the other radio psycologists).

Can't you fit her program in anywhere? For a radio talk show station your station has no psycologists and needs to fit a broader audience. (Some of us don't give a damn about a woman's "rack" or listening to how low mankind can sink as a race)

Give us Dr. Grant. She promotes hopefulness in humanity & challenges us all. Plus all the woman at my work and clubs love her....can't you reconsider....or at least do a market survey? You goofed............................a former KOTK listener

I agree with C. Smith's post. Now that Dr. Toni is gone why listen to

1080 except for a few hours of Tom Leykis? First Susan Powter

disappears and then Dr. Toni. Guess it's back to music and tapes.

To whom it may concern:

I was so disappointed when I turned on my radio at 12noon to 1080, and Dr Toni

was gone! I will unfortunately be changing channels, because I have no

interest in whoever was talking instead, infact that makes line up of whoever

that was, and Tom Lykus, I occassionally will listen to Tom Lykus, but my

absolute favorite is Dr Toni Grant, I was thrilled to find her again after

many years. I was an avid listener to her when she was broadcasting out of

Los Angeles. I wish you would have her back, and if not let me know where I

can find her, because thats who I will be looking for.

I will be tuning 1080 out for now!

Hi, I just found this web site via the Children's Music web site

( It's very well put together and informative. BUT,

it does not have nearly enough information about KBOO, 90.7 fm, which is

a great asset to the Portland radio waves. Here are a few of my


1. This year marks KBOO's 30th anniversary. That can, and should, be

added to your "Twisting the Dial" section. KBOO is the 5th oldest

community radio station in the country, no small feat. A lot of history

is available about how it expanded from a small, classical station to

what it is now.

2. In the "Program Style" section, I must suggest adding KBOO to the

information part. KBOO is referred to in the music part as "eclectic"

but it also offers a great deal of Talk Radio (every weekday morning

from 7:30-9), news (7:00-7:30am, 5:00-6:30pm), and public affairs


3. KBOO should be added to the Spanish music section as it offers

Spanish language programming multiple times during the week.

4. I'd love to see KBOO listed under "Portland Radio Ownership." KBOO is

owned and operated by the KBOO Foundation, which is comprised of all of

it's members - individuals and families from the northwest community.

Please feel free to e-mail myself or KBOO radio's Station Manager, Alan

Baily, for more information or clarification. You can also check out

KBOO's website (

Rumor has it KVAN Radio 1550 AM in Vancouver is being sold. Can anyone confirm

this..? The word is... the folks that own KPAM are buying it (the two stations

currently share the same transmitter towers). The deal hasn't made it to the

FCC yet. If the sale were would seem the KPAM folks would have

no need for two AM's and probably just close KVAN and resell the license. Any

comments..? I wonder why Jacor hasn't made a bid....

The "News" reported on KEWS is anything but news.

What they do is take issue advocacy press releases from various

organizations and repeat them verbatim.

Then, to assure that they can do this with impunity, the cowards make

it a point to not provide staff to answer their published telephone number.

They also don't provide a web site or email addresses for feedback. And

their voice mail system does not provide voice mailboxes for the on air

personalities. In short, they don't give a damn what the listeners think.

Case in point. KEWS is selling advertising time for a the political

issue of statehood for Puerto Rico. On the morning of Sept. 4th the

morning team, Greg Jarret and Manda Colberson (sp?), interviewed a

gentlemen who was pro-statehood. This gentlemen repeated the issues

presented in the political ad, which were that the issue was mostly

an economic one, and that it makes economic sense to make Puerto Rico

a state.

The uninformed hosts did not ask their guest about the partisan components

of the issue. The fact that Democrats are pushing this issue to expand their

voter base never came up. The fact that the CBO has produced a study stating

that making Puerto Rico a state would cost the US far more money in benefits

than it would raise in income tax revenue also never came up.

In short, the interview was flimsy boilerplate done to satisfy an


Another story receiving extensive coverage on September 4th was the

press release by HCI giving Oregon a near-failing grade on gun safety

issues. Why didn't this morning team present the FACT that states

receiving the best HCI grades ALSO had the WORST firearm violence

problems? Wouldn't this raise a question in the listeners mind that

perhaps the policies that HCI are advocating do more harm than good?

But no. To raise questions like these would challenge the intellectual

laziness of the KEWS staff.

These people are EXACTLY the reason why I no longer trust any component

of the popular news media.

you know KEWS has their own website? I don't know what the address is

but I accessed it through KOIN's site. Again, I really enjoy your site

and wish every city had one like it. Have you ever considered

Earth 105 was cool, not it sucks as "Rosie". Sounds like "Rosie and her

Hi there!

Just thought I'd let you know - as I was listening to Rosie 105, I believe

I heard new call letters - KRSK. You might verify that - I only heard one

ID, and I could have misheard.

Also, I went to the FCC's page to verify, and it still comes up as KKRH

there, but no one is assigned KRSK. I wouldn't think the FCC would be

behind on this, but who knows?

I just noticed this on the Oregon Live radio page--and confirmed it on the station's site--but KMHD is now offering a live RealAudio Netcast. (Unlike other Portland stations, they're not doing it through [the former AudioNet].) Also, the K-LOVE (KLVP) folks also do a live Netcast--in both RealAudio and MS Windows Media (the former NetShow); again, they're at

P.S.: I'm not 100% positive, but I think the CBS purchase of Amer. Radio Sys. has been wrapped up (it's still listed as "pending" on the Owners page).

The rhythm'n'blues singer and guitarist BO DIDDLEY will be making his

3rd appearance in just 12 months at The Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR

on Saturday October 10th 1998. It would be great if all the suitable

Portland radio stations were to have some kind of special programming

around that date. (Interviews etc. would be great!) It will also be his

70th birthday on Wednesday December 30th 1998, and, again, it would be

nice if all the suitable Portland, OR ( and all other area radio

stations) could come up with some special programming to mark this


Thank you.

Hey all you radio loving guys and gals:

Okay, it's official. On or about September 1 of 1998, I will be joining Santa

Rosa, California's Amaturo Broadcasting Group in two capacities: middays on

oldies KMGG and music director for their rocker, KXFX. It will be my extreme

pleasure to work with such former SF radio notables as Steve Garland, Frank

Terry, Bob Gowa, John Mac Flanagan, and Kathy O'Brien.

This is seriously looking like the most fun gig I've ever lucked into, and I

can't wait!!

Tentative last show day at KFRC is Monday, August 24.

Please pass this info along to anyone who might continue to insist that I have

left the field of broadcasting.

Dear Portland Radio Guide,

Do you know of how I can get in touch with the NEW people at that

station. I would just like to voice my disguest for what they have done.

Do you realize that on Saturdays from 2-4 "The Morning After Show" with

Pat Patterson was the only show in all of Portland that played local

music and nothing but. And he did this faithfully for a year. According

to what you have posted on your site, that means that this show must now

be gone. Can you help shed any light on this?

I noticed in the FCC database that 105.9 will be "KXMX." Smells like

another "Mix" to me. 106.7 already tried and failed as "Mix 106." But

Maybe Jacor can do something better than past and present lame attempts

at Medium or Hot AC.

P.S.: Just to forewarn you, the folks at Radio Online ( have these links listed, even though none of them work right;;; (which still goes to a basic Teleport page); and ( does work, even though it just goes to the Newsradio 750 site).
