“MARK’S GROOVY AIRCHECKS”-KCBQ, San Diego, CA-February 28, 1976-”KCBQ Becomes A Thing Of The Past”

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

"KCBQ Becomes A Thing Of The Past" was the classic "play on words" created by Gerry Cagle.  The build-up made the listeners think the station was history, as in "going away", as the lead-in to the announcement by Mason Dixon led us to believe.  Actually, it became more of a celebration of the past promotions that were a part of KCBQ, including "The Great Rip-Off", "Keep On Truckin'" and "The Last Contest".  This piece features airchecks from those classic promotions.
