CELEBRATING 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF FIRST SHOW IN SAN JOSE

The South Bay was the first place I could get a job after moving West from NYC.  There were 5 FM Rock Stations, 3 in SF, 2 in SJ.  After working full time as Music Director and 10p-2a DJ during the Summer of 1972 at Stanford's 90.1 FM, I got a job at KSJO.  It's now a foreign lanquage station,  but among the handfuls of original FM stations that started playing Rock ("IN STEREO"!!! ) in the late '60s.  During the Fall Music Festival at BR Cohn between 10a-3p This Sunday, we'll celebrate your Crustacean / DJs Four decades on the SF Music & Radio Scene.  I was excited to become part of it, and feel blessed to still be broadcasting.  97.7 THE RIVER IS BEST CLASSIC ROCK STATION for the North Bay, East Bay, San Francisco or San Jose...which doesn't really have it's own FM Rock radio station anymore.  Once upon a time, it a world far, far away, I got to return to "The Big O" after it's first disasterous format change.  It was Independence Day weekend, and thanks to long time Santa Rosa resident Cory B., who was an Engineer friend from Stanford back then, I had a reel-to-reel tape he recorded of the first 111 minutes.  For the musical ride, I thank you all.
