A poll done at North High in Riverside came up with the two following lists.

Man I was born in San Berdoo in 1960, and this post sure brings back tons of memories! Had older brothers and an older sister. I have listened to rock since I was about 5. KMEN and KFXM were sure something back then. AM radio was sure tops. But KOLA and KCAL took over. I remember when KOLA started and played new rock. Thanks for the memories.
