    I wanted to find out more about the K-Ocean Ownership change in 86 and who Sam Rosenblatt and Miami based Financial Capital Broadcasting Co was? Also how Jack Segal got his hands on it around late 88 to merge operations with K-Surf then selling it to Ken Roberts in 1990

    Rosenblatt was a Miami manager, having been at WTMI, WFTL, WYOR/WVCG among others. The company was apparently formed by him and some Miami investors.

    After Ken bought it, they “synchronized” the signals with TFT’s brand new ‘Reciter’.

    I would say once you've figured the edition where KSRF Santa Monica went from Beautiful/Easy Listening to AC, you can figure the switch likely happened at least a year earlier, since there is lag time between the station notifying Broadcasting and the yearbook getting printed. In some cases, when the transition is gradual, it make take several years for Broadcasting Yearbook to note the change.

    Most easy listening stations made the switch gradually so as not to alarm its listeners or advertisers. In the 1980s, they started adding a few more vocals per hour. Then they started to remove the more traditional instrumentals, Percy Faith, 1001 Strings, Henry Mancini, replaced with more contemporary sounding instrumentals, often from the genres of Smooth Jazz or New Age. Over time, these stations moved from 2 or 3 vocals per hour to about 50% vocals. And then finally, the instrumentals were eliminated. For that reason, it may be hard to say a given station made the switch on a given day.

    And we can also say KSRF and KOCM Newport Beach went from Easy Listening to Soft Adult Contemporary, in contrast to AC. Since the transition was gradual, very few easy stations went directly from Easy Listening to a full AC presentation, where DJs talk up the intros and play uptempo jingles. KBIG and KOST made similar transitions.
    Does anybody know when did KOST go from Soft AC to AC?

    Thanks
