KFOG Celebrates Three Decades
September 17, 2012 at 10:10 AM (PT)
CUMULUS Triple A KFOG/SAN FRANCISCO celebrated 30 years as a world-class Rock station in this past weekend (9/15-9/16). The station signed on SEPTEMBER 16th, 1982. First song played was "Rock the Town" by STRAY CATS. DAVE MOREY was the first DJ on the station on at noon.
During the special weekend, MOREY told the story of the sign-on, as well as other stories from his long career at the station. KFOG spent the weekend playing music from "30 years in 30 hours." Voices of the old DJs were heard throughout the weekend, as well as greetings from BAY AREA musicians (BONNIE RAITT, MICHAEL FRANTI, MATT NATHANSON, etc.). The station resurrected some of the old favorite special programs, including Psychedelic Psupper with AMIR MANSBACHER and The Idiot Show with M DUNG.
The entire staff, new and old, gathered at THE EPIC ROASTHOUSE on the EMBARCADERO, for a party and live broadcast on SUNDAY MORNING hosted by ROSALIE HOWARTH.
