Seattle’s First Two-Man Morning Team – Adkins & Johnston


[** Thanks to Brian Lord for catching a typo here. This has been updated to reflect Bob Adkins’ role at KOMO…]

If you were listening to the first morning, only one member of the team was in-studio. The other was sick and couldn’t show for the big premier.

The team split up about a year or two later. Bob Adkins moved over to KOMO 1000. He became General Manager of that station.

Ryan & Ryan, a morning team that opened at KAYO in 1978, were not as good, not funny and their time at KYYX was voice-tracked. Not as funny as Adkins & Johnson by a long shot. You had to witness the KING morning team to know the difference.
