Not many people held a single position at KUIK for long, that’s for sure. In three years I did weekends, overnights, overnight + AM Drive, then evenings.
OTOH that also means a LOT of people got valuable experience doing a lot of different things there.
It should be noted that the Collins 20V transmitter was still in place and functional for backup service as late as 1989, I have no reason to believe it was not still in working order the day the studios moved to the airport.
During the late ’80s the format moved from country to country/AC, to AC/light jazz, and to straight AC before going to talk.
Also should be noted that Brad Ford had his first News Director gig at the station at this time.
