KQLL/Tulsa Goes 'Classic Top 40'
February 9, 2007 at 3:37 PM (PT)
After stunting with a robotic voice saying random pop-culture phrases like "I did not have sexual relations with that woman," quoting song lyrics like "Does anybody really know what time it is?" and movie lines like "Strange things are afoot at the CIRCLE K," and counting down to something happening at 5p (CT), CLEAR CHANNEL Oldies KQLL (KOOL 106.1)/TULSA relaunched as "Classic Top 40: The Greatest Top 40 Hits."
The first song was DIANA ROSS' "I'm Coming Out," followed by GLEN CAMPBELL's "Rhinestone Cowboy," KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND's "Get Down Tonight," and THE ROLLING STONES' "Emotional Rescue."
"These are Top 40 hits that don't see the light of day anymore," KQLL PD KEVAN SEAL tells ALL ACCESS, adding that the station will run jockless for 10 days. After that, SEAL will return to his morning shift and RICK-ALAN WEST will move from afternoon drive to nights (7p-midnight); the rest of the shifts will remain jockless for the time being.
