Happy 30 Years KGGI 99.1

Something Harley Davidson had mentioned to me awhile back, and Bill Earl reminded me of today. KGGI 99.1 has been around for 30 years, and I guess they are celebrating their 30th Anniversary tonight.
KGGI and K/men were sister stations, but in 1979 K/men was playing oldies, while KGGI was top 40. It looks like they took the K/mentertainer and adapted it for KGGI (why didn't it become KMEN-FM?)
As far as I know this was the first KGGI publication/survey
DJs are ?, Lisa Giles, Benny Martinez, Brian White, Bob West, Cliff Roberts
#1 Album Get The Knack-The Knack
