Aircheck Of The Week


The year: 1968. The month was December, and KFRC was the Top 40 station to beat in the Bay Area. The jock was K.O. Bayley, known in New York as Bob Elliot, and in other markets as K.O. Beachin. It’s not Christmas yet, but Christmas music is starting to make its presence felt on the San Francisco airwaves. It’s 33 minutes of 1968 music and fun. Listen and enjoy.
