B Mitchell Reed KMET FM Part Two

Three hours plus of B Mitchell Reed on KMET from June 10, 1975. The station may have been past it’s prime but the creativity and irreverence is still apparent.

Most of the music played is from the  “Johnson Years.“ Now I know where KOME FM got their idea for the LBJ years.

You will hear an interesting and recurrent station ID using a bit from the Firesign Theater. A diverse set of music particularly on the third clip where you will hear The Rainy Daze, Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, Count Basie and more.  BMR at one point asks listeners to tune in to a competing radio station. Listen to Shadoe Steven`s reaction to that as he takes over near the end of the third clip.

More to come from KMET and other L.A. stations. Watch this space.

  1. This is gold.
    Thank YOU so, so much.
    I grew up with KPPC, KMET and KABC (which turned into KLOS) and miss it dearly.
    Over the years I have found some and am always on the lookout for more.
    Need to figure out how to archive it. I don’t want it to disappear.
