One of my favorite memories was sitting on 4-Wheel Hill near Snyder &
Harrison with all my buddies and our girlfriends around the fire with
KWFM cranked up.  It was about 1978 and whenever "The Smoke Off" by
Shel Silverstein came on (it was a new record then so it came on KW a
couple times each night) we'd all shut up and listen to the lyrics with
a big grin, then roll another number and have a good ol' time!  KW was
the happenin' thang!

It's great to see that so many people have signed this guestbook and
visited the KWFM page over the past 2 years.  KWFM meant a lot to many
people.  I especially like listening to all the old airchecks from
folks I knew and to remember that era in Tucson.  This is a great web
page!  Keep up the great work!

I don't really understand why Clear Channel didn't bring back the KWFM
call leters on Tucson's 92.9 frequency, maybe a few of the old jocks,
etc.  Especially since they play a Triple AAA format now and own the
calls KWFM on 1450 AM.  Seems like the least they could have done out
of respect for Tucsonans and radio fans.

Course in this day and age of corporatism it still wouldn't really
resemble the old KW.  What a GREAT station that was.  A lot of great
memories!

What an honor to see my name listed as a former employee.  I was only at
the station for three months (I think) at at $350/mo...that's all I
could afford.  When my salary was cut to $175/mo. and was billed for
the electricity used to record my "news,"  I finally got the hint and
left.  Short time but major creativity.  News isn't fun anymore...it's
downright nasty. Reunion plans?  Please let me know...I love Tucson.

What a blast it is to find this site. We moved to Tucson in 1978 and I
soon started working with Fred, Roger and Bill Cashman at Westwood to
put together a new band for the up and coming Street Pajama. I booked
and did sound for what I thought where the best years. Those gig's at
Tequila Mockingbird very cool. I have just spent most of the afternoon
listing to the Central Air Session that was recorded at Westwood for
KWFM. I happened to be in the studio that night. What a great band.
Cherie and I will be in Tucson in a couple of weeks, would be great to
see some of those folks.

Great site. This brings back a lot of memories for me from the mid-70's.
I was actually googling for some info on Street Pajama when I found this
related site.

After a few years out of the business and some 24 years after being on
the air at KWFM. it's nice to see a legend being remembered.

 Just took a second look at the pictures from the 9th Anniversary at
Reid Park, what you donít see are fat people. Now go by any high school
and look at the weight the kids have on. What happen?
 Canít be the beer, we drank plenty of that back then plus drinking age
was 19 so you could start your drinking (legally) career earlier.  We
made plenty of runs to Jack in the Box at 10 PM (ya know why), so it
canít be the snacking. 
I think the quality of what food we are sold is the problem. Plus
exercise, too much playing with computer games and not getting out. 
Letís see if we canít do better with the next generation.

Just found out today (Oct 2018) about Margie Rye. Deepest sympathy.
Spent the rest of the day reflecting back tot he 70's & 80's.  She gave
me an Tucson and a year at KUPD Phoenix many years of good rock and roll
entertainment. Back before internet I would tape her's and KWFM radio
shows an play them back when working up in Springerville pretending it
was the radio. I just loved it when Margie would host concerts. Margie
you were an original.

It is with deep regret I sadly post the passing of Margie Rye (Wrye).
She was on of the KWFM originals. Sadly she passed away yesterday
December 14, 2017. I do not know the cause yet. I a hoping you can
setup some sort of tribute for her on this website. If you need to
contact me, you have my email.

Used to hang around with Dave Gordon  in the mid-70s. Left town in '77
to report for daily newspapers. Retired  in 2013  and moved back to
Tucson. Would love to track Dave down. Anyone know where he is?

Hey Margie, I was hoping that you would known what happened to the 
freestyle band. I remember seeing them at tequila mocking bird, El Con
mall back then.

Just listen to the reunion again. Still sounds fresh.

 I was lucky to have been here in the 70's when KW was hot. History was
being made and I didn't even know it then.
 Band Free Style. Where are they now? I did Google them but so much
crap comes up. Song I can't take it no more still sounds great. 

 Dose any one else remember when the City of Tucson would flash the
traffic lights yellow at midnight so coming home from the Night Train
you didn't have to stop. Or better known as the Fright Train.

My aunt, Joan Klukas, worked for KWFM around 1982, 1983 timeframe in the
advertising dept.  She brought my 3 brothers and me in for a tour of the
studio on one occasion, where we met DJ Rick Allen, and were given a
Pink Floyd album as a souvenir.  It was a great experience to see where
the rubber met the road.

Remembering the 1st KWFM day, at the then Randolph Park. Also the many
good times listening to all my favs...ZZ Top, Lynard Skynard, Clapton,
Seger.
Always waiting to hear what concerts were coming to town. Back then
half the fun was waiting over night in line for tickets. I waited for
hours & hours to get Stones tickets in June of 78 for the July show.
The kids in front of me got the last 3 tickets! I went to TCC the
evening of the show, I ended up getting a ticket for $5.00. Wonderful
memories..I'm still a rock n roll girl !

Truly a great station! Remembering staying in the car - even after
arriving at your destination- to finish listening to Hey Jude or Layla-
played in their entirety, of course. Miss hearing all kinds of music and
great DJs.

Since the reunion show Dec. 19, 10, I've made it a habit to listen in on
my youth. Brain theory currently attributes the olfactory wiring across
certain neurocenters to make the scent of a cookie bring us back to a
day in 19-whatever, but I swear, listening to my k-dub on this site
transports me aurally in the same way.
Just the Mark Young Dec. 9 "74 aircheck with Blind Faith's "Can't Find
My Way Home" makes me visualize the Jack in the Box on old Speedway as
I sat talking to the clown ordering a great greasy taco at 1 a.m., on
my way home to Catalina Garden Apts. a couple blocks north at Pima and
Jerry, across from Al-Anon, and 2 Circle K's.
Keep this site up!
And, uh, thanks, man !

Great site. listened to the show. No body made mention that the City of
Tucson would turn off the traffic ligths at midnight. Thats how small
this town was. The lights would flash yellow E&W an flash red N&S. 
 They did that so when yo were coming home from the Night(fright)Train
on 4TH it was just that mush less you had to Negotiate.

  You got to ask your self just what is wrong with clear channel for
dropping the old KW an going commercial?

The reunion show was fantastic!
Nice to have a short blast of old, favorite memories, specially late
nights with BC.

Thanks to Margie Wrye, Cool 1450 and Clear Channel for putting together
the KWFM 2010 Reunion Special.  It was a captivating hour and a half; a
trip down memory lane!  (...if you missed it, you can listen to it at
your leisure here on the tribute website...)

Happy holidays, everyone!
