California Triple Treat KOME/KROQ/KMET

Continuing the presentation of California FM nuggets. The first clip has Jim Seagull on KOME FM from 1979 with more of the Johnson years. Highlight for me was the little heard Iron Buttefly track which opens the set.

Second clip featutes Jimmy Rabbitt on KROQ from November 1976. A set of diverse music from the veteren of both AM and FM radio. Rabbitt had also spent time at KMET.  This tape was made at the dawn of the punk/new wave era during which KROQ and DJ’s such as Rodnet Bingenheimer came to the fore. You will hear The Rabbitt promoting Rodney’s upcoming show with Sparks.

The final clip has B Mitchell Reed on KMET from June 1975 and BMR mentions Rabbitt and his show which was heard on KMET at the time of this recording. Rabbitt had some recordings out and you will hear a bit of one just before the news.

I have more content from all three stations already posted to the site with more to come.
