Carpe diem: KHJ was huge. One note---the Beatles came on the scene more than a year before KHJ went Top 40 in April of '65. But there's no question, the "more music" presentation by very strong personalities (Robert W. Morgan, The Real Don Steele, Sam Riddle---and later, in '67, Humble Harve and Charlie Tuna) combined with a tsunami of hits from the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Dylan and Motown gave that station, at least in its first few years, a feeling of being hardwired into a changing society and culture.^^Michael, your post brought back memories of growing up in the LA area back in the 1960s. KHJ radio was very big back then. You heard it everywhere; on the beach, parks, car radios, etc. The KHJ "Boss Jocks" were household names (Sam Riddle was my favorite!). When The Beatles came on the scene, their ratings really seemed to explode. To this day I remember KHJ radio being on my older brother's car radio when the whole "Paul Is Dead" scare was going on and freaking me out!! I did not know until now that "Humble Harve" was involved in a murder. You learn so much from this forum. Nice entry, thanks for posting.
