I tell kids that there were no real genres concerning music then as 3 Dog Night, The Jackson 5 and Yes would all be playing in rotation. It was the days of Billboard's Top 40s.
I moved back for a year in the late 70s and KMAC/KISS was the bomb. Joe Anthony and Lou Roney would put the needle on an LP, let it ride and then flip it over for the other side. I heard lots of Riot, Legs Diamond, UFO, KISS, RUSH and every other band you want to name.
On lunch break at work, I would tune into an AM station I loved as they always had the local "Farm Report" which was a hoot.
I remember listening to KONO and KTSA on my transistor radio - Sealed with a Kiss, Soldier Boy, Satisfaction, All the Beatles songs, - loved those songs. Wasn't Don Couser one of the DJ's on KONO?

Likewise, TCS. Betrayed, too. That was that last time I had loyalty to a radio station. Over the years I see stations changing formats and jocks every couple years due to ratings/numbers...then I'd hear the same jocks now at other stations saying that "The is THE radio station xxxx" They have to make a living, however.

Maybe 10 years ago I stumbled onto a radio station and the jock was Allen Grimm but his voice style was more like a top 30 station jock. I called up the station and said "Hey Allen, have you and Sam Kindrick finished doing the news already?" He was pleased to hear that.

As far as the last 3 hours of KEXL what I have learned is that there were some folks who went to the station and directly recorded the last 3 hours - then later made a 3 CD set - had some graphics made for the CDs themselves. I've got a friend trying to locate who might have/sell some of the old 3 "picture" CD sets of the last 3 hours of KEXL. When I get that info I'll post it here and on my site.

Rhapsody is great Rhapsody Online - Free access to millions of songs online is it I think $10 per month. Just about everything is available except Garfield. You can create your own playlist to play on your computer as you work - mix artists, mix music styles - today I want to listen to classical, today I want to listen to Lyle Lovett mixed with Pink Floyd, today I want to listen to every artist's version of Wade in the Water. There is no extra charge unless you want to burn a song to CD. There is also no pen is spam mail assocaited with it if you are paying the $10 per month. I think if you don't join ($10 per month) then you only get the first 30 seconds of each song.

One other Internet radio station of this type I like is Pandora Pandora Radio - Listen to Free Internet Radio, Find New Music It is free and you tell it what artist you like...it starts picking songs by that artist and similar artists - you hit a song you don't like - you tell it - and it starts trying to learn what you like to hear and keeps picking songs in that vein.

http://www.penningtontechnicalarts.c...FewMinutes.mp3

For those who have not visited Jay P's KEXL site, listen to the above link 1st, then go to

remembering KEXL San Antonio 104.5 1970's
for more.

For those of us who were 50's babies, this station was a big part of our growing up. We would get a tank full of gas and drive just to listen to this radio station.

There were 5 buttons on my radio and only 2 stations preset (when i was finally lucky enough to have a GM Delco FM Stereo radio in my Cutlass, KISS and KEXL. At least we were lucky to expeirence what great radio was, today we have XM.

Same thing happened to KZEW in Dallas.

THanks for the memories Jay!

During the promo of the station changing over they mention going to drink at the village inn, where was that place and the station located at?

I will be corrected, but something tells me it was on Austin Highway. I am sure that it is mentioned in the Gone but not forgotten thread, but someone will let us know.

...What came after the beatles song was the KITE announcer saying that "we would like to welcome all of our new listeners to KITE AM-FM...and all of a sudden, the listenership went to ZERO.
