August 6, 2015 at 3:59 AM (PT)
The LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL has honored CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Rock KLOS/LOS ANGELES for over 45 years of providing outstanding community service and the best classic rock music, by declaring this SATURDAY, AUGUST 8th to be "95.5 KLOS '80s Rock Day" in the City of LOS ANGELES.
HERB WESSON, President of the LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL, presented the official proclamation on the HEIDI AND FRANK SHOW on KLOS on WEDNESDAY morning AUGUST 5th. WESSON said, "It is an honor to declare AUGUST 8th ‘95.5 KLOS '80s Rock Day’ in LOS ANGELES. A warm congratulations to KLOS for withstanding the test of time and remaining the preferred rock and roll station for millions of rock music fans."
KLOS PD KEITH CUNNINGHAM said, "This is quite the honor and a grand tip of the hat to a fun decade of music and the hundreds of talented men and women who have worked at KLOS over the past 45 years. After KLOS rocked LOS ANGELES in the 70s and furthered the British Invasion, then came MOTLEY CRUE, GUNS 'N ROSES and a whole new movement of rock that made the SUNSET STRIP so famous, and KLOS was right there in the middle of the madness, throwing backstage parties and helping to break bands. We accept this honor on behalf of our listeners, current and former employees, and the 80s rock bands that have always called KLOS home. Now, if you'll excuse, I need to go find some leather pants because we just extended 80s Rock Week through the weekend."
KLOS 80s Rock Week will extend through the weekend, with a "Pour Some 80s On Me" Weekend featuring wall-to-wall 80s rock and tickets to 80s rock band concerts up for grabs almost every hour.
