I feel it justified to take a moment to honor the passing of a broadcasting icon. Paul Harvey, a true legend in our businees, passed away at age 90. Paul, I am honored to have been in this industry while you were a part of it. (Rockwell Smith -- Webmaster)
The History of Idaho Broadcasting Foundation
is pleased to announce our next Public Meeting
Friday March 20, 2009 from 11:30 A.M.-1:30 P.M
The meeting will take place at Smoky Mountain Pizza and Pasta
415 E. Parkcenter Blvd. in Boise and is a no-host lunch (you order off the menu).
The Program will Spotlight the “Glory Days” of
“The BIG-58” KFXD-AM
from 1970-1980 when KFXD-AM ruled the Market!
In 2002, 630-KIDO and 580-KFXD “swapped frequencies. The KFXD call letters still exist, but the station has recently been “re-branded” by its current owner Peak Broadcasting as “630 KIDO.” Thanks to Peak Broadcasting for keeping the KFXD call letters intact, they are Idaho’s oldest calls, having been issued in 1925 in alphabetical order (KFXA, KFXB, KFXC, KFXD)!
We will play excerpts from some the Foundation's tape library of old KFXD TM jingles, promos, and view some old music charts and other station information from that era. We may also play some jingles from their competitors, KBBK-FM, and KUUZ-FM (“KWZ”). We will also hold a general discussion about KFXD-AM.
You are urged to attend and bring anything you have on KFXD to share with the group. An RSVP is not required for this meeting, and you don't have to purchase lunch, or be a member of the Foundation to attend. There is no charge to attend other than the cost of whatever you choose to order for lunch.
See you at 11:30 A.M. Friday March 20th at Smoky Mountain Pizza and Pasta
located at 415 E. Parkcenter Blvd. in Boise!
