KOUNTRY KAYO


Early 1970s jingles, missing that Kountry sound – KAYO 1150 (00:34)


Mystery Announcer

Okay, here’s one… who’s the announcer on this spot for Fleet Tire Center (1:13). As a double bonus, what is the probable station and when did the spot probably air ? — Ron DeHart: That was waaaay too easy. Yes, Ted Bell, on KAYO from ’60 or ’61. Ted was a radio pioneer in Seattle in the ’40s with old KRSC and others before helping KAYO become a big player in its rock and roll days in late ’50s early ’60s.


KAYO Singalong jingles from 1963, Kountry KAYO’s first package of custom
jingles. (2:24) Other jingles came and went, but these always stayed in the mix.

Mostly Countrywide package plus a few strays. These never fell out of favor. – Dick Ellingson

KAYO Jingles 1958-1963

Here are 8:20 worth of KAYO jingles from 1958 to 1963. These are not in any chronological order. At 5:27 is an intro for the Pat O’Day show. It’s a shop worn acetate. The other jingles are from cart tape and acetates. I copied these in the KAYO production room in 1963 not long before KAYO went Kountry. (Duane Smart)
