Heh, Doug....when I was a young single woman I used "RYE" for some
anonymity at home....you are correct the real spelling is Wrye, but I
answer to either/both...haha  :)

I so remember and miss the days when radio was good.

I bought a copy KWFM On The Air from 1980 at a garage sale. The first
track, " Tough Customers" by Central Air, has a familiar sound,a lot
like the Steve Morse band, The Dregs. With no liner notes I can't say
for sure. Got any input? Good album though.

Aside from that, we had a progressive station in Cleveland, WMMS, but
they keep changing formats. We do have The Fusion Show once a week on a
college station with Randy Allard hosting for 22 years.

THIS IS GREAT!!!

I worked 7p-12m at KWFM from 83 to 85 for Jim Ray. I was there on the
day the music died and they changed format to soft rock. Shortly after
I went to KOMP in Las Vegas to work for Charlie Morris. Those were the
best days of my 25 year radio career. Still have the old KWFM Silk
Jacket!

Thanks for putting this together! Great Memories.

Wow!  This site is soooo freakin'cool!  Hearing those old Bob Cooke
airchecks brought tears to my eyes.  Thank you for doing such a
wonderful job of preserving the memory of this great station!  

Chris Wagganer

P.S. Keep an eye out for "High and Dry" the documentary which I
co-produced about the Tucson Music scene which features interviews with
Dave LaRussa and other Tucson air personalities.

Found this looking for anything I can find on the classic "Mississippi"
Charles Bevel song "Overheard".  

I have heard only on two radio stations, both in Tucson.  One of course
was KWFM (still the best station I have ever listened too).  The other
had a direct link to KW because the music director the overnight DJ for
several years on KW, and that was KEKO.  

It was a shame when KRQQ went on the air and forced KW to change its
(what is now called AAA) format.

Was in Tucson last March (O4) and heard the Mountain, good, but still
not as good as KW in its heyday.

I just wanted to let everyone know my dad Alvin just pasted away October
21, 2006.  He was very proud of KWFM and it always was a big part of his
life.

It was so much fun photographing the crew throughout the years. KWFM was
my favorite station. Miss all of you.

Thanks to my dear friend Lee Dombrowski for e-mailing me this site! I
was happy to be a part of KWFM during the greatest years, and a pioneer
woman jock in the good old days. I will be happy to dig out some old
playlists and send them in...I see you have perhaps the best photo of
me that was ever taken! I keep in touch with Lee and Matty
Siegel...would love to hear from the rest of you.

I am so sorry to hear about Nina Joy's passing. She was an inspiration
and a role model for me. The world of radio has lost a great one.

My YAHOO email acct. got 'hacked'. I hope this add. gets posted in the
right place(s).

 Tim. Just got off the phone with JB. He agrees with me that all of us
(former jocks,sales,mgmt. personel) have put one hell of a burden on
you, Tim Warden (though he {you}loves it) with keeping this site
updated and ongoing. I don't think it's too much to ask those of us,
including listeners from "the day" to celebrate TIM WARDEN for his
tireless efforts in keeping us connected. How about we figure out an
appropriate 'thank you!' to Tim for his dedication to the K-DUB site???
JB, (Jim Brady) is pretty jammed at Brady Recording Studios in Tucson.
So post. your ideas  over the next 60 days and let's see what pops.

Good Gaw-w-w-d Kevin. Just hit on your 10/14/07 post. What a past
blast.I was a choo-choo's around '73-'74.Wonder whatever became of Zeke
(night mgr./bouncer at Choo's). Miss weekends with Joe and the boys from
Weasel. We went to 'Flag' a few times to hear them at their home
bar-Shakey Jake's. That mural on the pool room wall was done by one of
the people who followed me here when I left the D.C. mkt. for K-dub
early 70's. The long haired dude on the wall with the pool cue is moi
(40-yrs.ago). Thanks for your contribution down memory lane. And a HUGE
SHOUT-OUT TO TIM for his tireless efforts in originating and maintaining
this site.

Yo Mark...you got me remembering the blinking east-west traffic lights
on 22nd st., Broadway Blvd., Speedway Blvd. Grant Rd., et al.
Sure miss the old K-Dub with AB/JB/Matty/Janie Snyder/Bill Robins/Lee
Dombrowski, so many others, and OF COURSE--the KWFM faithful AND, NEVER
FORGETTING, the businesses putting their hard earned advertising dollars
on K-Dub while we got this puppy in the rating books. For me? '72-'74.
Some of the best times of my life. GOD BLESS MARK YOUNG!!
May 6, 15 steve howser bellbrook, OH
 
Yeah bro. '72-'77--loved those blinking yellow lights on Speedway,
Broadway, Grant Rd., et al. Loved my days w/AB,JB, Matty, Janie Snyder,
Bill Russell, Lee Dombrowski and the K-Dub fans who supported us thru
the formative years.
God bless, and God rest Mark Young.

There were 2 great radio stations in my life during my slightly extended
time at the UA ('77 to late '81), KWFM and WXRT in Chicago (KWFM was the
better of the two.)  It's a shame what's happened since.  Kdub is gone
and XRT is a shell of its' former self (it's now owned by CBS Radio,
need I say more.)  The photos and Tune In To The Past bring back a lot
of great memories.  Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this
site.

I am very thankful to KWFM for all the great memories especially those
Friday nights out off of Houghton Road in the back of my truck, I can't
remember all the girls names but I can what was on my radio. And then
there was Saturday Nights cruising Speedway, KWFM was a lot more than
just a radio station it was a way of life for many of us. Thank you for
all the great memories.

I worked with Lou and Norm in Tucson in 1977. Remember Westad
advertising and our campaign for Robert Royal for mayor. 
I remember our fun in San Diego when you were with Marty. We went to
Tucson to do a  commercial with James Kahn. 
Nice to catch up and remember
Sincerely, david gentner

I grew up in Tucson and had just got out of the Navy when KWFM went on
the air. Just before I left the Navy I made a quick trip to the
Exchange in Yokosuka Japan and came home with what was then a nearly
unheard of FM Tuner / Amp and killer speakers.  KWFM went on the air
soon after I arrived home and sounded great on my system.  The station
was informal enough in those days that if you called ahead the DJ's
would usually let you in the studio which at first was about the size
of a large phone booth.

Kay-Dub.  Nothing finer in radio before or since.  I was glad I was in
Tucson listening in during the Golden Years of KWFM.  Best study music
for those late nights cranking on U of A lab reports, etc.  Thanks for
the website & the memories.

  The Beatles Collage had been going through my head since the 70's .
Never thought that I would ever hear it again !  Bravo ...

I remember sometime in 1974 a friend's older brother told us that KWFM
was THE station to listen to, so we did.  I never stopped until I left
Tucson in 1980, but it was one of the things that got me through high
school.  I recall a hilarious pre-concert interview sometime in there
with Frank Zappa (1978?) -- anyway to hear that again?  The station was
better than buying records.

KWFM supplied the soundtrack for my stoner-rock teenage years...fond
memories of the syndicated Flo and Eddie and National Lampoon shows on
Saturday nights before I started attending house parties every weekend.
I remember when the station first started as a pre-teen floating around
the head shops which had just moved from 6th St. to 4th Ave...donation
cups for a new "freeform" commercial free FM station...broadcast in
mono. I went to California with my parents and upon return, tuned in on
my Craig portable cassette/tuner; low and behold the red stereo beacon
was glowing! Fond memories of absolute on-the-air madness the day Nixon
resigned. How about the summer millions of grasshoppers took over the
city and people were phoning in suggestions on how to get rid of them.
I remember someone suggesting the issue of pistols to everyone, ha-ha!
(Oh my and how about Hot Rocks Records? I started going to bars way
under age
Choo Choos and that other place that was on the corner of 4th Ave and
6th St. By the way miss both Doc and Shag!) Back to FM. With the good
there is always some bad. I hated all the country rock and jazz
and when punk rock brought life and rebellion back to rock music, hated
how the station ignored this music.
but alas, it did trickle as with a Talking Heads interview
Karen Stern playing DEVO and our pal Dave Larussa with the "Anything
That's Rock 'n' Roll" show. We had the big "protest" by the UOFA in
regards to the three rock FM stations ignoring "new music" to the
dismay of recording engineer/producer Bill Cashman who released an
album by my band JOHNNY SEVIN
I'm trying to squeeze 10 years of memories into this paragraph which is
coming off as some sort of stream of consciousness / ADD rap but I will
say that I'm happy this site exists and I will return to hear more air
checks. RIP Bob Cooke
you were a talented, funny DJ who was a pal
I cherish memories of your visits to the Johnny Sevin house

Tim,

Thanks for putting this site together and including my too brief stay
at KWFM.
I still return to Tucson yearly and love it but I do miss the free days
of KWFM. 

Thanks,

Amazing to see all these pictures of my parents (Jim and Donna). My
father taught me an appreciation for music that fulfills my life to
this day, and by 15 I could convincingly agree why Aja is superior to
Gaucho; however, my father might disagree. He passed in 2001 and he is
missed dearly. I hope these pictures remain up for a long time.
