Since the station's format is Classic Rock I decided not to play my favorite marching band tunes, Gregorian chants, Osmond Brother favorites, or love songs from William Shatner. What I am playing are cool songs from the '60s and stories about growing up in LA. Kinda like the stuff I talk about in my book, THE ME GENERATION...BY ME (which you need to order now to be ready for Christmas).
Plus, there's an added significance. In the mid '70s I was a disc jockey on that station when it was K100 and I was Beaver Cleaver. Since my radio stints usually ended with stories about being fired (see last Thursday), I of course have one for K100. I walked into the station one day and the program director, Bill Watson, called me into his office and delicately couched it this way: "Hey, babe, we're making some changes and you're one of 'em."
So join me tonight if you can and Watson doesn't get to me first. You just go here. Then click the listen live button. 6 PM PST/9 PM EST... and everything else in between. I have no idea what time that is in Bhutan.
