Now Hear This: Jonathan Brandmeier KZZP Phoenix -1981



The first words Brandmeier said on his first morning show at KZZP on Monday February 9, 1981. (:52)
104.7 FM signed on the air in 1950 as KTYL-FM (calls now used by a station in Tyler, Texas), co-owned with 1310 AM in Mesa. It later became KBUZ-FM with a beautiful music format. In 1976, the station changed its call letters to KIOG and aired a soft rock format. Western Cities Broadcasting purchased KIOG in 1980 and changed it to a Top 40 format as KZZP, with personalities like Jonathon Brandmeier, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Otto, Kevin Ryder of Kevin and Bean fame and Steve Goddard. During those days, the station was then known as “104.7 KZZP.”
