On January 27, 2017, following a nearly 30-year run, Open House Party founder John Garabedian hosted his final show. Featured here is a montage of approximately the first 70 minutes of the program, recorded from Hot AC/Modern AC hybrid WTBX 93.9 in Hibbing, MN.  Segments from the remainder of the broadcast will be posted on a future date.

KDWB (101.3) – Minneapolis/St. Paul – 8/25/97 – Tone E. Fly

According to Wikipedia, KDWB (which started on the AM dial) has offered a Top 40/CHR format continuously since 1959 – an absolutely remarkable achievement. (Does anyone know if this makes KDWB the longest-running station of its format in the United States?)   This montage, recorded 17 years ago yesterday, features the personality-heavy Tone E. Fly show and the voice talents of the late and great Brian James. It is the perfect example of what a Mainstream CHR station should sound like.

KDWB is another one of America’s longest running hit music stations.  This montage, recorded 15 years ago, represents a great example of what a CHR station should sound like.
