Anyone listen to the Kmen Rewound Memorial Day?

They played airchecks, jingles, promos and mostly sixties music.
Harley wants to know what you thought about it.

What did you like or dislike about it? Any suggestions?
Should there be another day like it?
There could be another one with more/different airchecks/jingles if anyone wants more.

Comment here or at and Harley will read your suggestions/comments.

New KFXM Guys

A comment by one of the readers made me realize there has been a change KFXM lineup.

The 1963 KFXM Survey below, and the prior week show these changes..
Gone are Mark Denis and Ronnie Gorman.

New are Jack Fleming, Don Chambers and Bill Diddy. Jack Fleming is returning. He was last seen on KFXM January 1961 through October 1962.

They are no longer 'THE SWINGING SEVEN" DJs but now the "MUSICAL MOB"
