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?
We start our 7th year April 4 and invite you to join us during our new season of car and truck, motorbike shows as we continue through the summer to October. We'll return with more of the Best Sounds in Town from the KMPC Mobile Studio remake of the station's popular remote 60s cruising van, a popular fixture seen at local record shops, Angels baseball and other Southern California area venues where the KMPC truck was a familiar site until 1979. And, now, here's where the big white truck will be this year:
