As I recall, I think it was either
10/25 or 10/28 when the jocks at
KFXM walked out starting the
infamous AFTRA strike at the
2 stations (KDUO).

They were quickly replaced at
by the infamous JONES BOYS.
Al Anthony had a desire long
before that to have a theme
of Jocks. He got his chance during
the strike.
The strike went into the Spring
of 69 and subsided by May.
Only a few returned (Jim Conniff,
J Bruce, Don MCcoy (who didn't participate on the picket line). AFTRA lost the strike.
Nothing was gained. Owners won
out and Al Anthony was one
exhausted manager and glad it
was over. The station was never
the same again.

That's my recollection. Anyone else have details or corrections??
