Going Down Memory Lane--Seattle's KOL
There was a time when radio's DJs were so sharp, you could not wait for the song to end just to hear what they would say next. In this riveting report, we go back to Colorful KOL, a rock and roll station that was the perennial bridesmaid to KJR in the mid to late 60s in the Seattle Radio Market. It was at KOL, that my cousin Burl first made a name for himself. Burl, as well most of KOL's staff would eventually wind up at KJR. In fact, the unstable nature of the radio biz had DJs continually pingpong from one station to the other.
