Ted Hikel – I worked at KURB in Mountlake Terrace in 1968-1970 and at KBRO in 1967 and 1968. I could add more info about these stations if you are interested. Bruce Bartley owned KBRO and was a former law partner of Warren Magnuson. During the depression he owned the Olympic Hotel and Troy Laundry. He was the most unforgettable character I have ever met. KURB was the idea of businessman Pat McMahan who wanted to promote Mountlake Terrace with a radio station even though Lynnwood was the commercial center. He wouldn’t consider making the station a Lynnwood/Mountlake Terrace station. There were actually 10 owners. Bruce Bartley warned me not to go to work for 10 owners. He was right.
