KYNO #1 Fresno!

~
You just got home from school and it’s Channel 30 Fun Time! Or maybe Nancy Allen's Movie Matinee on Channel 24. Don’t forget the BOSS 30's #1 KYNO. If you were sophisticated, you only listened to KFIG on some new airwave called FM. We honor the late great Al Radka here at Lost Fresno whose motto was Lettuce Eat it!

As the yearbook photographer at McLane, I shot this 1973 photo for the advertisements that ran in the back of the book. Wish I'd shot more of the interior! Includes DJ Mike Novac.

RE: Frank Terry was the DJ who did the drum-a-thon.

Yep, I was there. I saw Frank Terry drumming away.

The KYNO surveys are so classic. When I see one from the time that I was listening to KYNO every minute that I could, it sends me back to that very time. This survey is form December features JOSE FELICIANO in 1970. What a great year in Fresno that was!

Wasn’t KIRV 1510 active in the late 60’s for a few months? I had my grandfather’s 1938 Zenith radio (3’ tall) in my bedroom and I could get stations from L.A. to Stockton on good nights

KIRV was pop, rock and album cuts back then. Studio was on Blackstone Ave. just north of Mckinley Ave.

Play this YouTube for a great sound recording of the Johnny Scott show on February 10th, 1968. Listen to KYNO's "Solid Gold Sound" with many familiar commercials, including Al Radka and the 3 Stooges. I smiled when he announced the weather, "local dense fog so watch it" ... fog in Fresno, ya think?

Also, this show is from the "Million Dollar Weekend" where after every few songs he would hype the "Location X" game. Although the prize is $1,000 not one million. They did this many, many times over the years where a 15 second sound was played and you had to guess the location. It's hilarious to hear Johnny ask one listener that called in to carefully repeat the location as in she may have been the winner! The Fresno Bee printing press she states. But no, she was wrong.

Then there's the news where we hear of the latest Vietnam B52 saturation bombings. And finally, a big show is annouced at the Rainbow, its Buffalo Springfield, then the phrase: BLOWS YOUR MIND!

A short list of common KYNO tag lines include:

BOSS RADIO
BIG 13 ... GOLDEN
BOSS JOCKS
KYNO Number One ... GOLDEN
SOLID GOLD SOUND
KYNO 20/20 News
KYNO CASH ... MORE MUSIC
