July of 1971 Doug Collins, Chris Roberts, Thom Devine, Bob B. Blue, Johnny Kaye. Al Brooks was weekends. The new guy Ed O'Brien. Only picture I've found of Al Brooks is below in the group shot.
Al Brooks in picture with contest winners.
December 1971 Top 100 of the year #1 Joy To The World Three Dog Night. Doug Collins, Chris Roberts, Bruce Chandler (moving over from K/MEN) Johnny Kaye, Thom Devine and Vic Moreno.
June 1972 only change is the addition of Ron Christian. A few years earlier was on KMEN and in the early 1960s was on KFXM for awhile. There was no picture published then, but this picture if Ron is probably from that time, about 10 years before this.

The cartoon appears to be the KMEN headed home with Quinn, Dusty Morgan, Gene Lane, Buddy Scott. Also the only mention of Ted Ziegenbusch as Zig the Fish(prophetic). I'm not sure who Kelly the fish is. Anybody? Anybody? From the last post. Hopefully this picture can be enlarged, unlike the last one.
Johnny Helm (formerly from KFXM), Bruce Chandler and Joe Angel.
February 26, 1971 The last newspaper (That I have. Anyone have a later one in 1971?), and it featured the lineup.
2/26/71 Dave Sebastion in cartton form (whom I assume was taking over for Jim Quinn-whose picture is still featured next to the survey. Mark Ford, Bruce Chandler, Scott Segraves, Joe Angel and Bob Brooks
June 22, 1971 appears to be the next survey to be published. No longer on newsprint. The following is Dec 10-16, 1971. The very last survey that featured formal picures of the jock lineup.

How about a feature about the the "events" by each station? I think KMEN had more. There were a couple of treasure hunts in the mid 60's, there was the sleeplessness marathon at a car stereo store in Riverside, there were a couple (?) of "Walk Back and Forths? John from Fontana (back then)
In K/MEN's first year (1962), they had quite a few events. I don't know much about 1962 events (that was before I listened on a regular basis, so I don't much about them). If someone can give me details, it would be appreciated. 1962: The Ocelot Race/The Walk Back and Forth between San Bernardino and Riverside (The 1st of three?)/Watermelon Eating Contest/1st Annual K/MEN Car Stuff/$1,000 Treasure Hunt/Build A Thing
The K/mentertainer didn't give much information. You had to listen!

May 1967 gone is Brad Edwards (headed to KMEN) and welcome to Johnny Helm. June 1967 weekend guy Craig Denny was added. Not sure about any other weekend only guys, but Denny was the first to get a weekly picture. Not much of a turnerover like KMEN had in 1967.
Lenny Mitchell and Jason St. George, a couple of short timers in 1967. Lenny was probably better known in San Diego radio.
Also included welcome letter from St. George published in the K/Mentertainer.
In the comment section, tell me a couple of your favorite KMEN and /or KFXM DJs.

In March Dave McCormick replaced Brian Lord, and Robert E. Walker replaced William F. Williams. By the middle of April John Ravencroft would be gone with T. Michael Jordan coming in.
Bobby Darin left in July and Jason St. James came in for only a couple of months. Fred Kiml was replaced by Mark Ford in September. In October we got Russ O'Hara for Jason St. James. Ron Christian left in November and was replaced by Brad Edwards (a KFXM alumni). And finally in December Bobby West was gone, and replaced by Phil Otis (who later became Bobby Otis) If anyone sees any errors let me know.

K/MEN published their survey in a newpaper for 21 issues in 1965. Then 11/12/65 they went back to the small survey. The same format as they published before. It would be almost another year before they would publish another. What you see here is a photocopy of the last issue, along with the first returning small K/mentertainer.
Coming up next Volume 2 Number 1 of the K/MEN newspaper.
