I worked as an ad sales rep for KWFM from 1983-1985. Won a couple of
Tucson ADDY awards for the the copy I wrote that was produced by the
great air staff of both KWFM and then sister station KCEE-AM.
In 1983-84, I remember assisting our Chief Engineer (I can only recall
his first name was "Bill") with the installation of the new transmitter
and STL on top of the mountain after hours.
Dan Hicks of NBC Sports (Golf, and most recently 2016 Olympic Swimming)
got his start at KW/KC around that time.

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.

I lived in Tucson from '76-'79 & I remember that the DJ's would always
answer the phone with,"FM", because it was understood that this is the
ONLY station of note! I also remember they played a song for me on my
birthday(as requested by my sister, I was in the desert partying & she
knew I would be listening)it was "Montana" by Frank Zappa, who else
would play him??!!
One other memory, I scoured the city to get as many bumper stickers
as I could & covered every square inch of my bedroom walls with them!
It looked pretty cool! Glad to have found you guys!

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.

I just listened to an old tape I found of the KWFM Jazz Show with Chris
Ryan! Sure brings back memories and it was so nice to hear Chris'
voice again. I miss those days. IMO, the Sunday night Jazz Show was
absolutely the best part of KWFM. Hope Chris is doing well.

Just found this site somehow when revisiting the record "KWFM On The
Air". I grew up with KWFM but I moved to San Diego in 82 and to
Australia in 84. Really, really, miss it. I understand there is a new
incarnation on the AM band now. Can't possibly be the same can it? My
souvenirs extend to "KWFM On The Air" and 5 C90 cassettes taped off the
air when everybody went on holiday (or something) and had a robot DJ (or
something) play every Rolling Stones track from A to Z (or whatever). I
remember there was a contest where you were supposed to figure out
which one track was left out. Anyway I have from approximately D to S
with some inevitable missing periods.

On the air I was Bob Allen. KWFM introduced me to Spanish language radio
through it's sister station KEVT where I also worked (in Spanish). Some
time later after working in both languages I went to Spanish in both
Tucson & Phoenix full time where I spent 40 years.
