LINCOLN FINANCIAL Smooth Jazz KIFM/SAN DIEGO has added DAVE KOZ’s daily network show, as well as BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE's Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown, the latter of which debuts this SATURDAY morning from 7-9a.
"We’re excited to be adding the #1 countdown show for Smooth Jazz to our weekend lineup," KIFM PD MIKE VASQUEZ said. "The host, ALLEN KEPLER, knows most of the artists personally and is able to share interesting anecdotes about them and their music. A well-produced, two-hour destination show like this helps us to add further depth to the KIFM brand with our audience and we're looking forward to having it on our station."
"I am so excited to be on the air on KIFM where my radio career started 26 years ago!" Smooth Jazz Top 20 creator and host ALLEN KEPLER noted. "KIFM is the station that motivated me to get into radio. Our Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown® is on in some really cool cities around the world like MANILA, PHILIPPINES and BANGALORE, INDIA, but KIFM and SAN DIEGO are truly ‘home’ to me. What an honor to be part of the KIFM team."
