Remember those endless lines of customized Fords, Chevys and Plymouths cruising Sepulveda Blvd in Van Nuys, or Woodward Ave. in Detroit, Highway 1 in Fort Lauderdale or along Colorado Blvd in Glendale, California?
Well, this site is dedicated to the memory of great radio stations... like 77WABC in New Yor'k City, KYA1260 in San Francisco, WLS Chicago, KXOK in St. Louis, and KDWB in St.Paul. Their Top 40 rock 'n roll play-lists kept us tuned in to hear our favorite DJs playing those unforgettable hits of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
...And, In LA, Gene Autry's KMPC710, with it's
airwatch helicopters and fleet of big block Chevy
wagons, kept motorists informed of the southland's
current traffic while playing the Best Sounds in Town
until it, too, faded from the AM radio waves..
So, this site is dedicated to helping keep some of
those memories alive at car shows in northern Utah's
counties where the hits keep on coming.
Join us, won't you?

On Thursday, November 8, 2018 the Butte County 911 Dispatch operator in northern California received a call of a fire about 7:00am. That fire, named 'Camp Fire', would cause nearly complete destruction of the town of Paradise by late that day and into the next, destroying more than 18,000 structures and claiming the lives of 85* persons during its rampage just one year ago. Our sincerest Thank You to the emergency services personnel who responded and who did their best to aid the victims of the Camp Fire, including my 92yr old aunt and her daughter, who each lost their homes one year ago.
*total count varies between 85-89 victims
