It was a very dark period back then,
as I recall at the KMEN..........

...Coming down the pike was the Texan millionaire Lincoln Dellar, in the final phase of completing his purchase of the station with hints of upcoming major changes to all aspects of K-MEN 1290 AM Radio.
Life was we knew it at "The Rock of the Inland Empire" would soon come to an abrupt end.

Mr. Dellar, in his usual 'grandeur' style, would take the icon broadcasting outlet in an entirely new direction according to "how we do things back home."

For those of us who saw the handwriting on the proverbial wall, we realized it was time to move on.................

He probably saw this genre
as passing and past it's time
on AM radio.

Yes, indeed, the soon-to-be owner of K-MEN took the station in a new direction all right, to the bottom of the ratings heap!
the great numbers until the purchase were an asset many of the us worked hard to achieve in vying with our cross-town rival KFXM.
