Gil Garcia 70s Radio Jason Wayne

KNOW AM 1490

During the summers of 1975, 1976 and 1977 I used to stay up late listening to an AM radio kit through headphones. Often I would tape it as I go. My favorite station was KNOW. They played all the most wonderful top 40 music.

Best of Gil Garcia

[RADIO] I ended up with a couple hours' worth of recordings of DJ Gil Garcia's shows on KNOW, from August of 1975. Gil appears in the left picture at the top of this page. Here is a five minute clip (in RealAudio format) of some of the juiciest moments I'd captured, lovingly scoped. This is 70s top 40 radio as you always loved it. (If you like this and want more, check out Uncle Ricky's Reel Radio page.)


In February, 2002, a reunion event was held in Austin for everyone involved with KNOW Radio. Because of my tapes, I got to attend as an archivist. I was the youngest one there except for children of attendees!

Dixon Hayes sent in some wonderful off-the-AM-radio recordings from 1979. Here are some of the juiciest moments from those.
