As a teenager, I grew up listening to KWFM. It was easily the best rock
station in the area, and Tucson's only FM stereo rock station. I'm
pleased to be able to offer this tribute site and hope you will enjoy
browsing it. Please take a moment to sign the guestbook. If you have
any airchecks or memorabilia, we would love to hear from you. Cheers.

Thank you so much for the great site and time machine back to the great
KWFM and the early 1980s Tucson music scene I loved so much! Dave
LaRussa STILL rocks, and I am still thankful to him for all of his help
as I started in music... Any old Tucson scenesters who remember Jacket
Weather, The Marshmallow Overcoat or any of my other bands please drop
a line! :)

I grew up on KWFM ..... Nothing like growing up at the base of the Santa
Catalinas with the warm winds blowin' and Steely Dan, Bad Company and
Santana pumpin' thru on the old Kenwood. Beautiful .....

Geez Louise!!! They just cannot make a Radio Station like KWFM was in
the 70's-some of the 80's. Bob Cooke was the Greatest!!!! We had alot
great AM conversation. R.I.P. Mon Ami!!!
Lived in San Francisco in the mid 80's to mid 90's KFOG was like KWFM
but couldn't and never could be like FM in the 70's.
I live in Coastal North County San Diego and we have a cool local
Station called Sets 102, But I like my music via satellite. Too bad we
cannot "beam" all the Greatness of the 1970's KWFM into Space and back
to Earth. It's the Back to Earth that hards!!! Thanks to whoever put
this together!!! My Brother Jim was in a few of those great bands we
had around town back then!!! Adios Muchachos~ Tomas

My Sandusky predecessor made the deal to buy KWFM from Alvin Korngold.
I was lukewarm to cold on the acquisition for a number of reasons, not
the least of which was that I thought we had agreed to pay too much for
the station. The ratings had slumped.
Dudley White, Sandusky's chairman, told me bluntly and impatiently one
day that I had to **** or put my pants back on.
So we informed Mr. Korngold that there had been material adverse change
at KW, contract jargon usually reserved for Acts of God, and would not
consummate the deal. So we renegotiated and saved a million bucks.
In 1982, only 4 AOR radio stations in the country ranked #1 overall in
their respective markets: KBPI, KDKB, KWFM and WMMS in Cleveland. That
accomplishment, one of many, is a sterling tribute to Jim Hardy, Jim Ray
Cobb, Lee Dombrowski and the entire team of All-Stars that staffed,
loved and continue to love KWFM.
I and Sandusky were fortunate to have played a part in the station's
rich history and tradition of excellence.

Wendy Korngold was a member of my age group swim team in the 70's. On
occasion, she'd show up for practice and say "Coach, do you want a
couple of tickets to the Rolling Stones concert?"
Wendy, I still owe ya!!! Your family's radio station was one of the
best 'back in the day.'
The spirit lives on with KPIG in San Fracisco...there are still a few
of 'em out there.

Hey Cats and Kitties. I love this site. As a former radio personality
in town, I have fond memories of your station, including Sunday night
Jazz. Tucson needs a full-time jazz station again. Long live the
"Great American Art Form."!

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.

My father Mr. Korngold was the founder and owner of KWFM. He started
from the ground up. It was actually named after me when I was a little
girl living in Tucson. My father has recently died, and I came upon
this website, I just want everyone to know, that his entire life he
never stopped talking about KWFM, and we, his children have the
greatest memories of all the station provided us as young kids growing
up....This is my tribute to my dad, who I loved deeply.....

I so remember and miss the days when radio was good.
