    Default KFAC memories

    I may be looking for something that doesn't exist but I'm starting here to ( Possibly ) give me a lead or two.

    I would absolutely LOVE to hear ( and maybe own ) some airchecks ( soundclips ) of the Los Angeles classical radio station KFAC .

    KFAC existed from the early 1950's to 1989 when it was sold and went to another format.

    It was the premiere station for classical music long before it's only real replacement , KUSC , came along .

    The stations' programming in the 1970's was a special time for me . I'd give anything to live it again , at least in hearing some clips or an extended air check .

    Thoughts from anybody ? anyone remember KFAC

    Being English I know nothing of this station but there is a wealth of stuff about the station online.

    I found a Youtube aircheck of WFLN (95.7). That all Classical music station in Philadelphia was great from the time I discovered as a teen (60's). But by the 90's it became a shell of its former self playing short popular light Classical with lots of ads and then it died.

    I have fond memories of KFAC. I remember they ran a parody magazine ad once with a nice-looking man in a before-and-after picture with the same man as an overweight, T-shirted, TV watcher. When his Arab prince friend asked him how he became so rich, so thin and so sexy, and that launched his testimony as to how KFAC changed his life.
