Retro Friday: KABC Radio Edition
Once upon a time, people actually listened to KABC talk radio. (These days, it's barely a blip in the Arbitrons). The station went all-talk way back in 1960, making it a pioneer in the format. Above, a 1980 or 1981 ad for KABC featuring the hosts of that era (Ken and Bob, Michael Jackson) as well as Vin Scully.
Above, a full history of KABC radio -- which in its early life was KECA, sister to now-dominant rival KFI.
