Welcome, and thanks for 'tuning' in to this website. We hope It will help take you back in time when AM radio was king and cruisin' was the thing. After all, the music from the car radio was the source of those great hits of the 50's, 60's and 70's. These were the sounds that kept many of us cruisin' to our favorite radio stations as we headed to a local drive-in cafe after high school or to the beach on weekends.
Can you recall the endless line of customized Fords, Chevys and Plymouths as we cruised along Van Nuys Blvd in Van Nuys, Woodward Ave. in Detroit, Highway 1 in Fort Lauderdale or Colorado Boulevard in Glendale, California? Great radio stations like WABC in New York City, KYA in San Francisco, WLS in Chicago, KXOK in St. Louis, KDWB in St.Paul kept us tuned in to hear our favorite DJs playing unforgettable music.
In Los Angeles, KMPC710, with it's airwatch helicopters and a ground fleet of big block Chevy station wagons, kept motorists informed of the southland's current traffic and news events.
*No longer a commercial broadcast operation - KMPC, KSFO and KVI were owned and operated by Gene Autrey's Golden West Broadcasters from 1959 to 1997 . The station's call letters and original dial location have long since faded into radio history. This site is dedicated to the memory of Gene Autrey and his top rated GWB radio markets, and to the many dedicated employees in News, Sports, Talent and Engineers, with a special thanks to Bob Forward, original Station Mgr.
The KMPC* remote broadcast truck of the 60s has been re-created and is now in it's fifth year as Station of the Stars Production's (SOTS) mascot, playing car show music and other scheduled events in northern Utah with a single purpose of helping to keep the memory of AM radio alive. We'll play the hits you want to hear with an interview or two, and perhaps even a few
surprises, along the way, A special thanks to Roger Carroll for his support!
