KBCA MIDNIGHT (JIM GOSA)

Jim Gosa wraps up his show giving the full signoff-type legal ID. Station later changed calls to KKGO and kept the jazz format until after they went classical KMZT. They are now a Country station.

94.7 KMET...

Finally - another memorable jingle from The Mighty Met! Hear the harmony of the singers telling us what is the place to be!

Tweedle-DEE!

The famous "boogie-woogie"-type female jingle from the 1970s is now here for your enjoyment.

KIDSTAR SIGNS ON IN SAN DIEGO 7/24/96 (12:58)

On July 24, 1996, at about 12:40 P.M. (appropriate time), AM 1240 KSON switched over to the Children's formatted KidStar Radio Network. After about 10 seconds of what sounds like a metronome, an outer-space-type countdown takes us to the new (albeit short-lived) format.

MEGA BECOMES THE BEAT -- JUNE 30, 2000 (04:03)

At 5:00 PM, the last day of June 2000, Mr. Smokey Robinson was given the honor of flipping the switch to take Mega to 92.3. For a few seconds, 100.3 actually did go off the air; you can hear bleedthrough of another station playing The Eagles' Lyin' Eyes -- and if you listen closely about 2:46 into the clip, you can make out someone yelling, "Yabba Daba Dooo!"


John Logic's midnight thank yous on his last show: May 11-12, 1989 (08:30)
This segment includes a commercial for a radar scanner, and a funny ad for 7-Eleven's new Breakfast Bite. At 2:54 into the clip, John Logic thanks everyone at The Edge for their support (great roster of station personnel!) Concludes with call-in "Midnight Legal ID" segment.

101.9 The Edge: Last "Scarry News" May 12, 1989 (05:35)
Rick Scarry and Raechel Donahue team up for the final time to brighten a very dark morning in Los Angeles. Includes the traffic report where I got jingle traffic3.wav (funny lyrics).
Watch out for that plywood!

Randi Thomas talks with a Go-Go 5/12/89 (3:47)
Four years after the Go-Go's break up (she erroneously says it was five),one of them sends her condolences to the station via telephone.

Manuel Noriega on 101.9? (0:48)
Further enhancing The Edge's last day was a "visit" from one of 1989's top newsmakers. Well, not really, but you make the call.

101.9 The Edge "Crosstown Traffic" jingle (before traffic report) April 1989 (0:13.04)

101.9 The Edge "Crosstown Traffic" jingle end ("...she'll run right over you...") April 1989 (0:13.3)

101.9 KEDG Science Quiz Musical fanfare (0:03.43)
Also on 101.9, Alison King asked a scientific trivia question every morning on Raechel Donahue's show. Prizes varied.
May 12, 1989; 9:03 AM

traffic3.wav (Traffic report song with funny lyrics)
Similar to Ain't Misbehavin' with '20s-style megaphone voice. That moment's traffic report (of course, it's kinda old now!) can be heard on "Last Scary News" file above.

Intro to KHJ 1976 Year-End Countdown (03:14)

The countdown ended around midnight, Dec. 31, 1976. Following the #1 song (Don't Go Breaking My Heart by Elton John & Kiki Dee) and the legal ID, they rebroadcast the countdown, right after this wonderful recap of the year's highlights as only KHJ could tell it!
