KFXM Tiger Mag Nov 24, 1967

The KFXM Tiger Mag in glorious black and white. No color orange. This is not a photocopy, but an original, and this is the way they will be printed for awhile. Were they trying to save money? Eric Burdon & The Animals at the Swing Auditorium. Ed GRrrrr Sez article give a review of the show. Also the lyrics of San Franciscan Nights are printed.

Monkees-Daydream Believer/Goin' Down #1
Biggest jump into the Top Ten at #7 Skip A Rope-Henson Cargill. I didn't understand why it was such a big hit then, and I still don't get it.
And of course highest debut on the top 40 Hello Goodbye/I Am The Walrus-The Beatles
also debuting #36 An Open Letter To Dad-Chris Howard, an answer to #5
Personal Picks My Beautiful People-The Malanie, which is actually by Melanie, and not the same song as the Kenny O'Dell hit that is #3,
I like Susan-Buckinghams except for the sound effects in the middle of the song. It seem to be taking after My World Fell Down-Sagitarius in that aspect.

K/mentertainer stuff with questions????

So if you wen to broadcast school in 1967, did you have to wear a suit and tie? Dide the Rightious Brothers TV special ever get made?
Ads that usually accompany the KMEN survey, but too large to scan. Lyles Record City, the place to pick up your radio surveys in San Bernardino.
So, does this mean that rock and roll didn't get played much on jukeboxes? That was good news for Englebert Humperdinck and Dean Martin in 1967.

KFXM search KFXM search KFXM

I was going through some papers this weekend when I ran across a name and a question I had from someone a few years ago.
I had talked to a woman about 5 years ago, whose father had jocked at KFXM in the late 40s and early 50s. Her name is Susan. She stated her father had died when she was a very young girl in the early 50s. She was looking for information and an aircheck so she could hear her father's voice. I could not find anything on her father "Bob Collins" I found others with the name Bob Collins, but no one from that time period.
From the time period she was talking about, he probably worked with, or at the same time as "Tennessee" Ernie Ford. Did not find anything on the internet for -Bob Collins KFXM- from the 1950s.
Anyone out there have any information, or an aircheck? Thank you.

KFXM Tiger Mag Nov 3, 1967

Bobby Vinton on the cover, and with the #1 song. Hey man! This is cool!!! Al Anthony and his wife, with Sammy Davis, Jr.
Bobby Vinton article, if you want to catch up on his back ground.

It's 1967 and Bobby Vinton has the #1 song Please Love Me Forever. I think that is amazing. Don't tell anybody, but I like Bobby Vinton from Roses Are Red in 1962 to Midnight Show in 1975 (not a hit, but I remember hearing on the radio, and it didn't sound like a Bobby Vinton song-good song, and not a polka).
Highest debut #33 Beautiful People-Kenny O'Dell, Bobby Vee (Bobbys are making a comeback)has a version out, although his version did not get played much around the Inland Empire.
Pata Pata-Miriam Makeba hitting the charts. One of my wife's favorite from around this time.

My favorite debut on the chart this week, Judy In Disguise (With Glasses)-John Fred & His Playboy Band. Until recently it was overplayed on the radio (and I listened every time), but now you never hear it anymore.
Massachusetts-Bee Gees Personal Pick. By this time I was buying all their singles.
I Heard It Through The Grapevine-Gladys Knight & The Pips. I say it's so much better than Marvin Gayes' version
