As I recall KMAKe went on the air to challenge KYNO for it's #1 ranking of Top 40 radio in the 60's. The owners of the station brought in on-the-air talent from out of the area and did all kinds of stunts and gimmicks to draw people. One of the DJ's spent a week on a platform on top of a flagpole somewhere on Blackstone. I can't remember the names of the DJ's, but one of them had a red beard and refered to it as the "Gallopin' Red Runcible Cheek Runge". They were still at it when I left Fresno for the Bay Area.

Does anyone remember the M-F afternoon teen dance show on channel 47? Circa: '63 Each day of the week was hosted by a different one of the KMAKe jocks. I'll never forget Bob Morgan doing the most bazaar live commercial I've ever seen on TV. He squirted the entire contents of a tube of acne cream at the lens of the camera while staring dead-on, not-a-blink into the camera like a madman. All of those KMAKe jocks went on to LA and San Francisco big time stardom. Would love to see old video tape of those "Bob Morgan" shows.
