A funny thing happened on the way to KXOL.
TWO funny things actually - George Carlin and Jack Burns. Both are former KXOL jocks who became famous as comedians. They were part of an ever-changing cast of characters who graced the KXIOL mic during its 38 years (1947-85) of existence, including 20 (1956-76) as a Top 40 station. Other famous KXOL alumni include former CBS newsman Bob Schieffer, game show hosts Rod Roddy and Jimmy Kaye and singer Kenny Sargent, a featured singer with Glenn Gray and his Casa Loma Orchestra.
Jim Tucker was part of the crew in 1960 where we hear him handling afternoon drive.
