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 invite you to join us during this 2015 season gathering of cars, trucks, motorbikes and whatever else is allowed on the highways! After all, car shows can and do bring out the most interesting vehicles. ...And, we'll be there with the Best Sounds in Town from the KMPC Mobile Studio. It's a remake of the station's 1961 remote van, a popular truck seen at local record shops, Angels baseball games and many other Southern California area venues where the KMPC truck was a familiar site until 1979.
