Bay Area

KYLD (Wild 107.7) – San Francisco – 12/19/96 – The Dog House

This is a sample of formerly long-running and controversial “Dog House” morning show as heard on the Bay Area’s longtime Rhythmic CHR, KYLD (first on 107.7 FM and later on 94.9 FM). Please visit Wikipedia for more information on the history of this program.

KITS (Live 105) – San Francisco – 6/24/95 – Rolin West

Recorded 21 years ago today, this is a brief sample of The Bay Area’s longtime Alternative/Modern Rocker. Visit the KITS page on Wikipedia for more information on the history of this station.

KYLD (Wild 94.9) – San Francisco – 1/2/98 – Jose Melendez (Wild Workout @ Noon)

My apologies for the heavy doses of static that are present in this aircheck, particularly in the first 3 minutes. Recorded 18 years ago this month, here is a sample of a high energy midday mixshow from The Bay Area’s Wild 94.9. At the time, the station was one of the most entertaining and best-programmed Rhythmic CHRs, custom-tailored for its unique market.

KMEL (106.1) – San Francisco – 8/25/84 – Marvelous Mark McKay

31 years ago yesterday, Rock-formatted KMEL “Camel 106” came to an end, replaced by what would become a legendary CHR station. At its onset, the station’s nickname was “All Hit 106”; over time, it began to identify itself simply by its call letters. The actual sign-on is posted at our sister site, Formatchange.com. The montage posted here represents the one hour+ that followed. KMEL is now  an Urban station, resulting in a sound very different from its CHR days.
