Thanks much for sharing this aircheck. He was indeed the “great” Andy Barber, as described above. Of all the fun-to-listen-to personalities on “KING Musicradio 11” back during my high school and college days in Seattle, I remember him the most. Those were THE days of Top 40 AM radio, for sure.
Steve, yes finally had some time to listen to your most recent Barber aircheck. I have several old tapes from that era. It occurs to me what made him so good was really three things: High energy, great voice, and creative thoughts. Those are three elements that made jocks of his genre stand out no doubt about it.
I continue to be impressed by Outlaw 102.7 KIEV-LP’s coverage, licensed to Camas. The station had an amazing signal up to the Nehalem Ridge on Pittsburg Road while driving from Scappoose towards Vernonia. Even deep in the watershed I could get full-quieting reception. While not as strong, KIEV could also be noted on Cooper Mountain near Aloha.
If KYTE ever reactivates in the Coast Range things might become different.
