KPOK switched to “Cross-Country” combining Modern Country with Top Hits on June 18, 1973. Robert E. Sharon G.M.; Bill Calder, Operations Manager; Dick Byrd, Program Director & at the time Afternoon Drive. Vern Mueller, News Director & Robert O. Franklin, GSM. Ted Rogers & Ed Keebler were formerly with KRDR. Also on the schedule were Steve Glass & Mike Forrester.
The line up mentioned in my posting above must be later than July 1, 1973. This date was only on the Rate Card but was with a package of information on KPOK from the same time period, including the DJ line-up. As I said, I just acquired this information yesterday and haven’t had a chance to analyze it yet.
Now I see in notes taken from articles kept from the time period, that on November 15, 1973 it’s announced Jim Robbins takes over 9am to Noon, formerly on KSPO. Also mentioned Toni Conti formerly on KSHA will do Midnight to 6. This makes the DJ line-up above later than November 1973.
