  1. Keith,

    Congratulations!! Have fun and remember Texas doesn’t think it part of the United States. Texas is special and big. so think special and big make KISSing FUN in San Antonio.

    Worked there is early 70’s and it’s like any large market, audience is deversivied in background. But they all want to have FUN, Fun DJ’s, Fun Jingle package, FUN promotions with air staff getting out of the studio and doing lots of remotes for any excuse. Grand Opening, Business Anniversary,
    car shows, Miss River Walk contest, whatever. dress em up and kick them out of the studio. It was a fun city and a good radio market back then. You’ll do great. Best wishes,
    Steve Gibbons former KITE AM owned by Doubleday Broadcasting in those days.
    I was with Saga/Iowa for some time.
