Retro Friday: Mom, Sometimes My Country Music Radio Station Doesn't Feel Fresh
From 1982, a commercial for L.A. country radio station KZLA. How sitting on a bunch of rocks by the ocean was supposed to bolster this guy's pitch for country music, I don't quite get.
Of course, as you know, station owner Emmis dumped country off KZLA a few years ago in favor of rhythmic AC format KMVN, with Rick Dees in the morning. When that flopped, they leased the station to Mexico's Grupo Radio Centro, which now programs Spanish-language KXOS at 93.9. But that format has so far been a flop as well.
