I came to Tucson from northeast Missouri in the Summer of '72. I was
stationed at DM, working at the hospital. It didn't take long for me to
discover KWFM, and my radio stayed tuned to it till 1977, when I left
KWFM introduced me to a universe of artists I had never heard of, and
probably wouldn't have if not for their outstanding crew and
Sometime in '76, KWFM simulcasted a concert by Tom Waits. I mention it
because I didn't see it in the history, and it was a really good show.
KWFM also introduced me to the National Lampoon Radio Hour, whose cast
included John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Michael O'Donahue, and other folks
who went on to The Not Ready For Prime Time Players.
I can tell you for sure that KWFM kept a lot of lonely serviceman far
from home company on a lot of nights, and I was one of them. Thanx for
a lot of great memories and music.

I grew up in Tucson and in my early years, my station of choice was
KTKT. When Kdub came around, I spent quite some time trying to get an
FM setup in my bedroom in the foothills. When I did, my world changed
and I became engaged in music and new sounds that still engage me
today. I'll always remember placing the white sticker with the yellow
sun all over my parent's house and my Dad going nuts.
I was extremely disappointed when Kdub disappeared in a format change
and I still know the disappointment I had back then. I have since moved
away from Tucson and have been exposed to bigger cities and the radio
they offer, but outside of WXRT here in Chicago, nothing really comes
close. Even XRT doesn't fill the bill, but I know how strongly
listeners in Chicago have felt about this station and I understand. It
just isn't enough for me. As time goes on, I find that I really
appreciate the past and this website is a fine reminder of how
important the past can be. I still remember absolute shock over the
senselessness of Bob Cooke's death. But my other memories are equally
as strong and they remind me of a Tucson I no longer see when I'm
When I visit Tucson today, which I do yearly, I seek out a station that
might take me back, but one never does. Kdub will never be replaced but
if I take time and think back, I can't quite feel those days, but their
presence in me is unmistakable. Thank you for the website and the
jogging of memories.

Hey Eric, howdy K-Dub fans,
Yeah, the site has been waaaaay too quiet, and I guess I'm the culprit.
If it weren't for this pesky day job, and all the other projects... I
can't even find time for ripping my vinyl collection...
So... Thanksgiving resolutions... -1- Don't eat too much. -2- Start
updating the site.
I've got a few great photos from Douglas Grant and Jim Ray to add, as
well as a few more RNRPS's to edit and add... and we're still hoping
to get some more goodies from Karen Stern, Jim Brady, and Bob Bish.
(Airchecks! More Airchecks!)
In the meantime, I've just posted a good year's worth of guestbook
entries... been holding out on y'all -- when they used to post
automatically, we had too many problems with imbeciles adding spam, so
I had to start posting them manually -- a royal, but necessary pain.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving, everybody and keep it here on 92 KWFM,

Hello friends! It's been so quiet on this site for over a year! Figured
it's time to post something. My radio job here evaporated at the end of
September, so I am between opportunities as it were.
We are finally going to get some much needed rain here in SoCal.
Hope you all have a pleasant Thanksgiving, 2008, and here's looking
forward to the new administration in Washington.
All the best,
P.S.: Look me up on Facebook if the mood strikes you.
