Re: Portland Area Original Call Letter Meanings


I’ve spoken with both Norm and Deane about this. Norm said that the KMCM call was “tainted” (his words) after the FCC investigations and all the trouble he had. He chose KCYX because the “cyx” part sounded like a “six”, and that was as close to “1260” as the available call letters could get to something he could live with. Deane has confirmed this, although it’s probably only because Norm told him the same thing….. and remember, we’re dealing with Norm Aldred here!
