Jonny Bruce, the new guy at KFXM in 1968
40 years ago Jonny Bruce became the weekend guy on KFXM. Pictures from when Jonny worked nights. And now a few comments from Jonny about working at KFXM.
It was a dream come true! I had been listening to KFXM since 1955 when I was 9 years old. It was the station I wanted to work for. With 4 years experience under my belt Al Anthony hired me when I walked into the station unannounced. He mentioned he remembered getting tapes from me during the previous years. My first assignment when I arrived in oct. of 1967 from the mid-day shift at 1510/93.5 KASK was the Sunday news slot on Sherman Mason's day off. But I longed to play those great hit songs I loved so I got the weekend gig when it opened up. Those 590 days were the best. Jonny Bruce
