Today that would be the back side of KSAT TV. As I remember, that was also the place where KONO 860AM was back in the day. As kids we went to the Turner Club with our parents back then and generally found ourselves at the station. Turner Club was right around the corner from it.

Okay, so somewhat of a rant here concerning old radio stations, one in particular. And I'm not sure this even fits in the context of this thread/forum, just a rant!

I miss the old KTFM 102.7 as it was prior to 1996. Rhythmic/Dance Top 40 with slight Hip Hop/R&B mixed in. This was such a good station until late 1995.

I think once Macarena came in, KTFM decided they could just start mixing anything Latin in and then the station went downhill. They went from mainstream-ish Rhythmic Top 40 to a stronger Freestyle leaning around late 1995/early 1996, plus it seemed like regional Latin urban Hip Hop type of music, I even remember them playing disco songs during the early afternoons and daytime around early 1996. The station could not figure out what it wanted to be. You go from Real McCoy, Boyz II Men, and Ace of Base kind of hits, to Angelina/Jossette/Lil Suzy/Spanish Fly music with Kool and the Gang/Sister Sledge mixed in and out during the day. Then, DJ Laz/To Kool Chris/Johnny whomever, and DJ who knows who after that. But the mainstream Dance hits, what made KTFM "KTFM", faded away.

Then it just got kind of trashy shortly after that before returning to a more Mix 96.1 type of station around 1999/2000.

On a side note, I miss KONO 101.1 as it was prior to 2004!

The Armadillo (KDIL) aired from 1993 to 1995, then became Smooth Jazz KCJZ. The Music Director at KCJZ was Norm Miller, whose son and nephew were friends of mine in high school.

I did NOT like the Armadillo at all.

I liked:
KRIO 94.1 back when it was country
KZEP when it was classic rock on 104.5
"FM Talk 106.7 KPWT" (6/1/08 until 4/1/10)
KRPT "92.5 The Patriot" from 4/15/2010 until 9/19/2012.


Nowadays, when I'm back in San Antonio, I listen to KKYX and KDRY. The FM "country" stations sound like pop with a little rap mixed in. smh...


I wish the jocks had more autonomy, more control over their shows. Sadly, there are only a handful of such stations still on the air in the US.

I know that the post is aged but in the 60s my uncle did a gig at KBOP as "cowboy shorty" and worked with Willie Nelson there if my memory is correct. My family lived in San Antonio and we would make the weekend drive sometimes there to see him and damn it was fun.
