In the late 80's and early 90's it did. It was the first and only time San Antonio had an alternative radio station. They also used to play techno and dance music every Friday from "Broadstreet", a club that used to be located at Central Park Mall. Wow this makes feel old.

Is that John Lisle at the top of the pic? Who are the other DJs -T-Bone, Tempe Lindsey, maybe?

Definitely miss Joe Anthony - S.A. rock radio just hasn't had that kind of personality and PR guy since.

I think Debbie is in the Metroplex area doing voice overs.

That KEXL page of the group in 1973 was a great find, Tony.
I was bored too just now and did a Google on KEXL and found this City-Data site....was reading some of the comments.

I saw there was a bit of confusion with some of the other posters about KXZL and KEXL. The real phenom was KEXL 104.5 which began somewhere around 1971 when I was 13 and ended around 1976 when I was 18. Pretty significant influential years of life, eh? Benny and the Jets was playing on all of the radio stations 24/7 at the time of KEXL's death - while KEXL played all kinds of Album Rock.

I do still have my KEXL poster "104 in the shade" with the Dude riding a giant armadillo that is getting a drink from a stream - painted like a Peter Max or Yellow Submarine style...that I've kept like a shrine all these years...hanging on my office wall today. I also scored a KEXL belt buckle and T-shirt on Ebay last year. Somewhere I have a digitized version of the yellow car decal and I also have the original vinyl dove sticker. OK..I was a fan of the station ...and the music they played influenced my taste in music for the rest of my life...
It was great to see the staff photo from 73. I also very fondly remember Nick St. John....Sam Kendrick and Allen Grimm doing the news in the morning...the armadillo races....the contests (I won a 10 speed once and a waterbed another time) Seems every time I pick up an Action magazine Sam has a mention of KEXL....even in recent issues. ..I do understand, Sam.

Unfortunately thinking outside of the box and trying to be independent from the flow is always a struggle and not always successful forever...but it was a magical time those 5 years or so. I have a box of cassettes in storage when I would record music with my portable cassette recorder and my monophonic portable mike pointed at the radio recording things during those KEXL days. I've always wanted to transfer those to say CDs but have never gotten around to it.
