Was working in Tucson from 1975-1980. Loved that
station, been none like it since. Grew my interest for alot of new
music and boy was there some good music in that you all invited us to
hear.

Found this while searching for MODA Mud Wrestling. I had no idea the KW
was still online! HAHA! I just read the blurs, and I wrote it!!
HAHAHA!!! No one answered the question tho'. I believe it was 1980, but
I need the exact date for a video I am making of the Night Train/ PM Mag
show. I guess locals all know that Martha was fired last year from KVOA
for shop-lifting (like they don't pay her enough!!).

I worked 'with' KWFM from 1979-1982, videotaping their events, including
the Westwood Studios Homegrown stuff, the 9th and 10th anniversaries,
the MODA- Choo-Choos, Mud Wrestling event (I was the photographer for
all MODA events). I will be posting the KVOA PM Magazine segment on
Vimeo and will post a link when it is ready. It is about all that
survives on tape, now digitized. I have the Central Air tape, but it is
so bad it would take years to clean it up, but copies were made for the
entire band and Jim Ray, so someone should have a copy! Whoever
monitors this site, please contact me. Wish I would have known about
the 40th event, I would love to have seen the old gang again. BTW, you
have Margie Wrye's name spelled wrong throughout this entire site.
'Rye' is a drink, not  a DJ! ;-) LOL!!
Sep 11, 13 Margie Rye Wrye (all of the above)
 
Heh, Doug....when I was a young single woman I used "RYE" for some
anonymity at home....you are correct the real spelling is Wrye, but I
answer to either/both...haha  :)

Just listen to the reunion again, still sounds fresh. Was lucky to have
been around when this history was being made and didn't even know it.

 Dose any one else remember when the City of Tucson would flash the
lights yellow after midnight. So no stopping when coming home from the
Night Train (or Fright Train). 

 The band free style. Where are they now? Can any one comment on it? I
did Google them but so much crap comes up with it.
Thanks
Mark


Song: I can't take it more, still sound good.

 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.

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.

  The Beatles Collage had been going through my head since the 70's .
Never thought that I would ever hear it again !  Bravo ...

You guys REALLY need merchandise! T-shirts and bumper stickers; it's
been years since I've driven a car with a KWFM bumper sticker... it
just hasn't felt right since.

 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 discovered this site while looking up "Overheard" by Mississippi
Charles Bevel.  I so miss that station!  At least we have KXCI...

Yeah bro. '72-'77--loved those blinking yellow lights on Speedway,
Broadway, Grant Rd., et al. Loved my days w/AB,JB, Matty, Janie Snyder,
Bill Russell, Lee Dombrowski and the K-Dub fans who supported us thru
the formative years.
God bless, and God rest Mark Young.
May 7, 15 steve howser bellbrook
 
Yo Mark...you got me remembering the blinking east-west traffic lights
on 22nd st., Broadway Blvd., Speedway Blvd. Grant Rd., et al.
Sure miss the old K-Dub with AB/JB/Matty/Janie Snyder/Bill Robins/Lee
Dombrowski, so many others, and OF COURSE--the KWFM faithful AND, NEVER
FORGETTING, the businesses putting their hard earned advertising dollars
on K-Dub while we got this puppy in the rating books. For me? '72-'74.
Some of the best times of my life. GOD BLESS MARK YOUNG!!

Nostalgic for Tucson.  Nice site you've got here.  One correction if I
may.  You've got a picture in your Gallery labeled "Central Air", which
is actually one of the last incarnations of "The Air Brothers".  Left to
right: John Houge, Greg White, Chris Drake, and Dale Caddell.

Lived in Tucson 1980 - 82, remember great station highlighted by Bob
Cooke's tribute to John Lennon when he was killed; have two cassettes
of Beatles music thanks to Bob. Sadly we were still there when BC was
taken from us. Still a sad memory to this day. Long live the memory of
KWFM in Tucson and WZMF in Menomonee Falls,WI.

My start was at Chicago's WYEN in 1973. I'm still on the air at WKOA
Lafayette In. Several of our personalities have spent time in Tuson.
I'm glad you have kept the memories alive.

Looking for Gene/Bill Thayer. Back in my Navy days I was a submarine
sailor stationed in Honolulu, and was the "Ship's Entertainment Petty
Officer".

KPOI was very generous in that they allowed me use of their library and
recording facilities in order to make music tapes for the submarine's
crew music system.

While making a tape one night I encountered Gene Thayer, one of the
"Popular" ones, who allowed me to make copies of some Halloween class
Spooky Tapes made by Gene and Michael Guinn, another KPOI Jock.

Several years ago I found the tapes in my collection of Navy Days
Stuff, and took the time to do some editing and splicing and what have
you and laid the tapes to CD. I wonder if Mr. Thayer or Mr. Guinn would
be interested in a copy of the CD?

The names of the stories are "How I Found Count Dracula" and "The
Monster's Thoughts".

They are both excellent examples of classic radio drama production
work, with cool sound effects and piles of tongue in cheek humor.

Should anyone know them or their whereabouts, please have them contact
me. Halloween is about upon us and I think they would relish some of
their younger days efforts.

Thanks in advance to anyone who could clue them in and/or contact me
via e-mail, and we can go from there.

E-mail is w7tty@centurylink.net

Regards to all,

Amazing to see all these pictures of my parents (Jim and Donna). My
father taught me an appreciation for music that fulfills my life to
this day, and by 15 I could convincingly agree why Aja is superior to
Gaucho; however, my father might disagree. He passed in 2001 and he is
missed dearly. I hope these pictures remain up for a long time.

Sad to report the recent passing of the lovely and talented Nina Joy.
Danny Zelisko sent out the news on 11/29:2015. RIP Nina

I am so sorry to hear about Nina Joy's passing. She was an inspiration
and a role model for me. The world of radio has lost a great one.

Good Gaw-w-w-d Kevin. Just hit on your 10/14/07 post. What a past
blast.I was a choo-choo's around '73-'74.Wonder whatever became of Zeke
(night mgr./bouncer at Choo's). Miss weekends with Joe and the boys from
Weasel. We went to 'Flag' a few times to hear them at their home
bar-Shakey Jake's. That mural on the pool room wall was done by one of
the people who followed me here when I left the D.C. mkt. for K-dub
early 70's. The long haired dude on the wall with the pool cue is moi
(40-yrs.ago). Thanks for your contribution down memory lane. And a HUGE
SHOUT-OUT TO TIM for his tireless efforts in originating and maintaining
this site.

It was odd that I was thinking back to the times when I lived in the
barrecks in 73 and 74 at DM. My first exposure to FM radio...and a lot
of other things. It would be great to find some old faces..Anyhow..KWFM
was a great source of entertainment back in the day!!!

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?

 Tim. Just got off the phone with JB. He agrees with me that all of us
(former jocks,sales,mgmt. personel) have put one hell of a burden on
you, Tim Warden (though he {you}loves it) with keeping this site
updated and ongoing. I don't think it's too much to ask those of us,
including listeners from "the day" to celebrate TIM WARDEN for his
tireless efforts in keeping us connected. How about we figure out an
appropriate 'thank you!' to Tim for his dedication to the K-DUB site???
JB, (Jim Brady) is pretty jammed at Brady Recording Studios in Tucson.
So post. your ideas  over the next 60 days and let's see what pops.
