  1. The Rocket was a must read for teens and 20 somethings wanting to be hip in the 80s. KYYX, where I worked, was constantly a target of letters to the editor, saying we were too commercial, our DJs weren’t right, and whatever else they were unhappy with.
    One time, a letter said a certain DJ should be lynched. The prompted a response from owner Pat O’Day’s son, who also worked at the station, which was so scathing that it started a tit for tat that went on for several issues.
