June 2002 – Radio & Records/Airing `Super Hits of the ’60s and ’70s’
Rhythmic Oldies KBTB /Seattle, which Clear Channel is acquiring from Ackerley in a deal that received FCC approval last week, on May 31 changed presentations to “Super Hits of the ’60s and ’70s” as KJR -FM. The station stunted with callout hooks the day before as “Quick 96.” The KJR calls were synonymous with Top 40 radio in Seattle through the ’60s and ’70s and were last used on 95.7 MHz in the ’90s, when that frequency aired a ’70s pop music format. At the new KJR, Bob Case stays on as PD. Ackerley /Seattle GM Michelle Grosenick is also overseeing KJR – FM’s rebirth. “KBTB was a good, solid station with a lot of passionate listeners, but it wasn’t performing well ratings or revenuewise,” Grosenick told R &R. “KJR had been part of Seattle for many years, and many people knew the brand. Even the jingles were very popular in this market.
