BMR on KMET 1975 & The Rabbit on KROQ 1976

More of the great B Mitchell Reed on KMET from June 1975 and  the ever irreverent Jimmy Rabbit on KROQ from 1976.

Listen for the brief ad for and by Dr. Demento  and a promo for Harry Shearer’s show on the KMET clip.

Like CFNY in Toronto during the late 1970’s KROQ was important for the development of new music and like NY it was also so much more in those early days. when a free form ethos ruled at the station. Rodney Bingenheimer had  started his show on on the Q at the time of this air check. That show did a lot to kick start the punk phenomena in North America. This was at a time when the station had reset after being off air for two years. The frequency used by KROQ was the same one used by KPPC FM earlier,

Take a trip back in time when radio mattered and enjoy these clips. There’s more from both stations that will be uploaded in the future.

  1. Man, I love your site, here! One problem: I was listening to this KROQ J. rabbitt show from 1976, & was digging it, then around 4 & 1/2 mintues, it just stopped playing. I tried it a couple times & same result. Is that something that you could resolve? Is there any way I could download that?
