    Used to be, we tried desperately to shake the “down on the farm, pick-up-truck, tailgatin, cold beeern, hot women, dee-vorcing image of country. Now, the suits build all the imaging and music around that bullshit. The one adult format that really could rule the airwaves, country, is constantly dumbed-down by people who have no idea of it’s potential.

    I saw Heck Harper at the Mollala Parade and rodeo grounds in 1958. I remember looking up at him sitting atop his horse, wearing a big cowboy hat, dressed in a bright yellow cowboy suit all decked -out with fringe and beads. I nearly dropped my cotton candy. Man, he was bigger than life. I had seen him on his tv show, but this was the first time I ever saw anybody who was “famous” in-person. For this little guy it was like seeing Roy Rogers. R.I.P.

    KLOO-Corvallis = K- locally owned and operated

    KFAT-Corvallis = When Kfat Gilroy, Ca. was sold and changed format

    KLOO-FM immediately filed for the KFAT calls and

    got them in record time. The former crew of KFAT

    who at the time were putting together another station later to become KPIG

    were really pissed and accused the folks in Corvallis of “stealing” the

    call letters. When the KLOO-KFAT sold in 1995 the GM, former PD who had grabbed the call letters notified the folks at KPIG in California that the calls would probably soon be available since the new owners did not like them. They did not respond and the calls ended up at a hip hop station in Alaska.
