KNUS FM Dallas 1969

Interesting content from one of the early Dallas Texas free form stations, KNUS FM, from the summer of 1969. This is an in tact air check only for 11 minutes at the beginning of the first clip but there are snippets of DJ patter interspersed throughout plus  a nice station ID at 45:19 of the second clip. Also notable is the ad for early Texas outlaw country act Frummox heard at 10:07 of the first clip.

The musical content is varied and indicative of a wide open free form musical policy. Some of the music played is outlined below and that musical diversity is the highlight of this tape:

Grand Funk, Melanie. The Youngbloods, Buffalo Springfield, The Nice, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Tony Joe White, Zephyr, Jethro Tull, John Stewart, Pink Floyd, Vanilla Fudge,The Moody Blues,  Roxy ( Bob Segarini’s second recording group, actually heard twice), Laura Nyro, The Rotary Connection, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Ruth White, Frank Zappa, Ten Wheel Drive and more.

  1. What the heck is that starting at 11:12 in the first clip. It lasts for nearly 5 minutes too! Truly bizarre they’d have played that on the radio!
