FROM COUNTRY TO REGGAEThe places that you are most likely to hear KFSR's new jocks are the KFSR special shows. These are the shows that feature one narrow branch of music.
Sat. 6-10: With the defection of the Slam, The Memphis Jukebox reverts back from Rockabilly to Country Music and Southern Rock.
Sat. 10-10:30: The Big Fresno Barn Dance - 50 years of Western Swing with Don & Steve.
Sat. 11-2: Latin Jazz in Sabor de la Gente
Sat. 2-4: Folk-type music.
Sun. 11-2: Soul on Sunday.
Sun. 2-4: Classical Music
Sun. 7-9: The return of the BBC College Concert and The Great Albums show. New live music followed by older music that was ignored by radio.
Mon. 10-11: The Jazz Album Revue - the best of the new J-A-Z-Z releases.
Mon. 8-11: Rhythm and Blues with John Richardson.
Tue. 8-11: Dis a Reggae Music.
Wed. 12-3: The Oldies invade once again.
If you want to broaden your musical horizons a tad, listen in on these special shows; maybe, just maybe, you might learn to appreciate other forms of music.
YOU SAY GOODBYE; I SAY HELLOWe are saddened to say goodbye to more of our departing jocks:
Felix Hawkins, who gave us J-A-Z-Z on Friday mornings.
Jerry Arradondo, Thursday Jazz. and
Steve Schmidt, Wednesday evening rock and roller who knew his music.
And welcome back big Mark Luzinia and Alan "Talk Too Much" Atamian
Well, hello again,
If you are a frequent KFSR listener (and if not, why not?), you will undoubtedly be noticing a few changes in the near future. First of all, a lot of new people are currently training to be DJ's, news announcers, sports people and public affairs personalities. So, your radio will soon be invaded by new vocal cords -- DON'T BE FRIGHTENED!!! Although they may not be real smooth yet, the new people will have all of the excitement that you have come to expect from KFSR. And when they mess up, well, try to chuckle-it's part of the process. (You see, we let people embarass themselves into improving.) Also, listen for more sports and public affairs programming, and, as always, the greatest new music (and JAZZ!!!)
Thanx,P.S. I hope everyone had a great time at Translator, I sure did.
RANDOM BOATSThe worst news of 1983 is the news that Mick Jones was axed by The Clash. We understand that Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon will continue without Mick, but we wonder what the point is. In our opinion (using the editorial "we" & "our"), Mick Jones was the heart and soul of The Clash, and to continue to use the name "The Clash" without Mick would be as honest as a Beatles reunion. Because whether he was backing up Strummer's gruff vocals with his whine or spewing out some of the most powerful riffs in rock history, Mick Jones was what made The Clash the greatest band to come out of the late '70s punk movement.
The greatest band in the world now is probably U2. If you want proof, catch their live performance at Red Rocks on Showtime. It's as uplifting and exhilarating as one of their albums, and it's easily the most incredible live rock and roll we've seen on film since "The Kids Are Alright." See it now.
Sometime Mid-Oct '83
