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,

I thought I'd been taken back to Washington, D.C., when I first heard
Bob Cooke on KW. He reminded me of Cerph, an amazing radio talent at an
amazing station back in DC's Maryland suburbs (WHFS-FM in "Beth -ezzzzz-
daah" Maryland.) He even sounded like Cerph. And, like Cerph, Cooke cost
me a hell of a lot of money. I'd listen to his show and just have to buy
a new "album," something I'd just heard on his show.
Of course, he wasn't the only talent on KW. I just connected more with
him because he reminded me of Cerph and WHFS. The KW staff was
I don't want to be an old fart, but I truly feel bad for my kids and
the other younger people who never got to experience radio "made" by
people with great ears and not some tin-eared MBA with software and a
pile of data. Don't get me started.
I'm thinking if Global Warming raises sea level enough the KW survivors
can set up a pirate radio station in the deep water just outside the Ajo
Reef in the Dire Straits of Bob Cooke. Maybe we can hire Margie as
Captain of Music. And yes, there should be plank walking and keel
hauling every afternoon during drive time. Request lines will be open.

KWFM supplied the soundtrack for my stoner-rock teenage years...fond
memories of the syndicated Flo and Eddie and National Lampoon shows on
Saturday nights before I started attending house parties every weekend.
I remember when the station first started as a pre-teen floating around
the head shops which had just moved from 6th St. to 4th Ave...donation
cups for a new "freeform" commercial free FM station...broadcast in
mono. I went to California with my parents and upon return, tuned in on
my Craig portable cassette/tuner; low and behold the red stereo beacon
was glowing! Fond memories of absolute on-the-air madness the day Nixon
resigned. How about the summer millions of grasshoppers took over the
city and people were phoning in suggestions on how to get rid of them.
I remember someone suggesting the issue of pistols to everyone, ha-ha!
(Oh my and how about Hot Rocks Records? I started going to bars way
Choo Choos and that other place that was on the corner of 4th Ave and
6th St. By the way miss both Doc and Shag!) Back to FM. With the good
there is always some bad. I hated all the country rock and jazz
and when punk rock brought life and rebellion back to rock music, hated
how the station ignored this music.
but alas, it did trickle as with a Talking Heads interview
Karen Stern playing DEVO and our pal Dave Larussa with the "Anything
That's Rock 'n' Roll" show. We had the big "protest" by the UOFA in
regards to the three rock FM stations ignoring "new music" to the
dismay of recording engineer/producer Bill Cashman who released an
album by my band JOHNNY SEVIN
I'm trying to squeeze 10 years of memories into this paragraph which is
coming off as some sort of stream of consciousness / ADD rap but I will
say that I'm happy this site exists and I will return to hear more air
checks. RIP Bob Cooke
you were a talented, funny DJ who was a pal
I cherish memories of your visits to the Johnny Sevin house

One of my favorite memories was sitting on 4-Wheel Hill near Snyder &
Harrison with all my buddies and our girlfriends around the fire with
KWFM cranked up. It was about 1978 and whenever "The Smoke Off" by
Shel Silverstein came on (it was a new record then so it came on KW a
couple times each night) we'd all shut up and listen to the lyrics with
a big grin, then roll another number and have a good ol' time! KW was
the happenin' thang!
