    The only time I used a different airname. KSND actually beat KJR (!) for the first time in 10 years––for a minute. People soon realized we had like 100 oldies, played off cartridge tapes only. You need at least a couple thousand oldies to do that right. Should have worked from 4 or 5 reel-to-reel machines for the music. Holiday had no formula for varying the vintage of the tracks.

    The cheapskate station worked me to death, like 10 hours/day. But I think I reached my 10,000 hours there.

    I liked KSND. I was a typical listener, unaware of the limited playlist. It was NEW and an attention-getter.

    When I saw the name Kirk Allison, I suspected that he was in fact the infamous Kirk Wilde who was a popular KPUG jock of the mid-sixties. I knew he had gone to KRKO, but had not realized that Wilde had ever used any other air name than Kirk Wilde. The post above confirms that my suspicion was correct.

  2. Seven of the top twenty were legitimate country hits per Billboard.
