1970s KMEN----Flashback!


I received a couple of comments recently on a posting, fromTed Ziegenbusch and Frank Kelly (June 20, 1976), so I thought I would repost it, with comments, but for some reason the pictures appear a little better on the original posting.

KMEN pictures
These are KMEN surveys from May and June 1972.
The last pictures of the KMEN on surveys.

On the motorcycles are Mark Ford (he's still there!) Brother Bill McKinney, Buddy Scott and Jim Quinn. I assume the guy in the background was the winner of the contest. These surveys are sleeves for 45 rpm records. The surveys on one side and pictures on the other. You could slip a record inside. The survey with Dusty Morgan 6/9/72, there was one more 6/16/72 which was the last one of this type, but no pictures of any jocks. Dusty had the last picture that was published on a regular survey from KMEN. September 29, 1972 a new survey started, but no news, no pictures and no jock listings. That lastest until August 10, 1973. Were there any after that? I don't know.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.

Hey Doug,Do you have any surveys or pics of Doug De Roo or Ken Levine/(Stevens aka Beaver Cleaver)?Also would it be possible for youto start posting front and back of every K/MEN survey in order starting the first one in '62?

Bob-No Doug DeRoo or Ken Levine. They wee probably after 1973. There was an anniversary K/Mentertainer in 1982 that Doug might be in, in a group picture. I only have a photocopy I'll find that and post it.Good idea to post the surveys, but I don't have them all. I may at a future date start posting what I have. I posted the first KMEN survey in May, if you didn't see it. Doug

I saw a car on the 91 freeway at this morning with the license plate "KMEN DJ." It was a man with a beard, 60-something years old. Got any idea who that might be? Got any recent pics of the DJs?Debbie

Kelly (the other fish) in the cartoon picture was Frank Kelly, our chief engineer and occasional weekender. I just found your site, thanks to a friend's email. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing.Ted ZiegenbuschKOST 103.5/Los Angeles(formerly "Zig" or Ted Ziegenbusch at K/men 1968-73, "Ziggy in the Morning" on KCAL-FM 1973-80).

Frank Kelly the fish here. As Ted mentioned I did weekends, fill-in and was the head technical sparky at KMEN in the early 70s. I even drew that picture of the K-MEN in the boat. If you look in the bottom right corner you'll see my ham-radio callsign WB6CWN.We sure had fun in those days. I can still remember the layout of the control room and production studios in what Scooter Seagraves called the "Cow Pasture Communications Complex". Just playing the hits.....Frank
