If one radio station ever existed that pushed musical boundaries KWFM
was the ticket to every type of genre. Bob Bish kicked and so did Doug
Jaffe with whom I lived in 1974 at Euclid Terrace Apartments, went to
UofA until 1980, now married with 3 children, my long association with
"electronic" music and those concerts at the Night Train on 4th Avenue,
saw Randy Hansen, The Dregs, Asleep at the Wheel... is owed to the staff
at this remarkable station.
Great I found this website....

Dear Old Real Radio Hounds,
Imagine my surprise….. KWFM certainly lives in my head and heart, and
I’m happy to see all the aged expatriates writing in to confirm that
they have not been swallowed-up by what now passes for commercial
radio. Since my mother was the first female newscaster in New Mexico
(in, I believe, 1938) I have a small bit of family investment in the
free airwaves. Mom would like that New Times picture of me too… all
It is of course crucial to add some names to the employee list. Those
of us in the Public Affairs Department in 1974 (ok, that means me) were
busy recording news-maker and rocker interviews for the show entitled
“Love News Confusion,” an original creation by Dick Hermans whom I
replaced. My personal favorite interview exists now as a CD: a killer
discussion with John McLaughlin, who presented a number of stunning
insights into his spiritual and musical paths. Forgive me but the
interviews with Ravi Shankar, Howard Baker, John Mayall, and Cheech and
Chong (recorded at the still-standing El Minuto after their show) have
long disappeared into tape-dust.
I am indebted to many of you for an era of very creative effort, and
my final hurrah in public media. The experience drove me to become a
psychotherapist, where I still work with crazed individuals but now
make more than $40 a week.
*thanks to those guys in the next-door Spanish radio station for
calling me “Pescado” whenever they saw me
*thanks to Matt Seigel for demonstrating that a music segue could
literally provoke an altered state of consciousness
*thanks to Lee Dombroski for selling advertising so that I could spend
eight hours generating thirty minutes of taped music and interviews
*thanks to Janey Snyder for being the brilliant station on-air female
presence and for playing Allman Brother’s “Blue Sky” every time I
phoned in the request…
Let’s quit our day jobs and start up again! I’m ready!

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! :)

KWFM. One of the true original community based radio stations. Real
People, Good music, support of talent and local involvement in the arts
and music scene. A lot of stations now claim to be "Community radio"
when all they are is just a soap box for a political agenda. They need
to take a look at one of the great true community radio stations, KWFM.
I miss KWFM dearly. Times change and when they do some of the best
parts of life become a cherished memory.
