Radio Notes: KIXI’s Easy Changeover


June 13, 1982 — KIXI AM accomplished its format modification, replacing the music service called “Music of Your Life” with new material called “Music You Remember.” All of the station’s musical fair is from the new satellite connected music syndication service, except that heard on the Bob Roberts drive time show, 6-10 a.m. weekdays. Roberts selects his music from the station’s prerecorded cartridges and from his own collection of early records.

Candi Chamberlain left the night shift at KJR last week to return to San Francisco. Matt Alan is filling in on the 7 PM to midnight shift until a permanent assignment is made.

Dean Smith, general manager of KIXI AM and FM, back from a recent commercial tour of China organized by the station, reports that the original concept was to include Wally Nelskog, president of KIXI Inc., as tour guide. Nelskog backed out, Smith asserts because Nelskog decided “nobody there probably speaks Norwegian.”
