Wow, what a pleasant surprise seeing a KOLA music survey posted here...

for those of us who fondly recall Fred Cote's historic vision for a non-DJ Top 40 programmed radio broadcasting outlet (and pioneering it on a Frequency Modulated station as well).

thanks, Dougmaster, for the treat!

To my eye the KOLA survey has a "visual look" that looks a lot like KMEN. Anybody know if there is a connection that caused that?

Knowing Fred Cote, there was NO direct "connection" with KMEN on ANYthing... Fred was immensely proud of his own creative ideas toward making KOLA what it was.

however, as a printer from that period, many offset printing publishers were utilising very similar typeset and detail art along with composition techniques. and so there IS a familiar 'visual look' with that of The K/MENtertainer.
