KFXM and K/men October 30, 1964

Don't have October 30, 1964 KFXM survey, but because in October 1965 KFXM did a one year ago today in their Tiger Mag, I can present you the top ten of this week. Next week will be the same situation. You will get the Top 10 again.
Baby Love-Supremes #1 Last Kiss-J Frank Wilson #1
Highest debut Everything's Alright-Newbeats #5 also Ask Me-Elvis Presley #7
Blueberry Hill-Little Richard
Thou Sall Not Steal-Dick & Dee Dee
Big Man In Town-Four Seasons
a few interesting songs on the Honorable K/mention
The oldest from July I'll Be Back-The Beatles It must have got a lot of airplay. Would have been a great single.
Little Honda/Wendy-Beach Boys half of the EP that also featured Hushabye and Don't Back Down
If You Need Me/Around and Around-Rolling Stones a British single
Gone Gone Gone-Everly Brothers A few years ago on the TV series American Dreams, the Everly Brothers were featured on the American Bandstand portion of the show performing this song. Anyone remember this? Also last year Alison Krauss had song with this same title performed with one of those guys from Led Zeppelin. Was it the same song?

KFXM 1984/1985

I rememeber at the beginning of the year, I heard that KFXM was going to switch formats, but it was going to be at the beginning of the summer. One day (I assume Feb 1985) I turned it on and it wasn't the same KFXM.

Going through the surveys I have for 1984 (very incomplete) and 1985, these are the last mention of the djs. I would assume one these people was the last on the air, or maybe Al Anthony? If he was still there, which I think he was.
Craig Powers/Lori Gaston 6-10 am, Jeff Kelly 10-3pm, Terry Shea 3-7 pm, Mark Mendoza 7- Midnight (no onelisted for Midnight - 6am) or the last guy could be one of the
Weekenders Gary "Breakdance" Allen, Jerry McKenna, Buddy Irwin, Bob Randall, but probably not Wolfman Jack.
These issues are July 23, 1984 and August 13, 1984
The very last DJ mention I found was Nov 26, 1984 that had a blurb that stated "Craig Powers In The Morning"
