We'd also play albums from our nascent record collections, but it was that FM station, with the mellow jocks and the incredible, head-spinning music that captured my imagination. So, this thread, while being of no interest to you, brought back a flood of pleasant memories of my introduction to album rock and budding love affair with radio.

    Reminds me of one of the first things I learned in "radio school"; "Don't disparage the music. Every song that you play, is somebody's favorite."
    Very cool, and your handle definitely does not fit your attitude so I salute you as we both share a love of radio AND enjoying outliers when it comes to radio stations like the old KYMS. All the stations I have found interesting are long gone: KUTE 101.9 The Quiet Oasis; later on KMPC-FM/KEDG; KROQ 1987-1990 version; MARS-FM; 100.3 FM (between Pirate Radio and "Easy" or whatever they were called); KSCA FM 101.9; KLSX weekends 1997-98; Channel 103.1 FM; Indie 103.1; 100.3 The Sound 2008-2009; in San Diego 92.5 The Flash; KKOS 95.9 and later they moved to 95.7; Sets 102.1 FM; 94.9; to name some); To bring it back to KYMS- I used to work for a company which bought air time from KYMS in the 80s and resold to area businesses sponsoring public awareness messages. KYMS I believe was Christian rock .....

    Even "We Built This City"!

    Reminds me of what one of the KOST personalities said once: "Everyone, at some point in their lives, will like and use the love songs along the KOST". I actually hope that sentiment is true!

    Your welcome David!!! At least somebody appreciates my hard research on history that is hard to find.

    Maybe they could find a home on American Radio History?
    Thank you for that. Unfortunately I did my original research back in 2014. My dad passed away in 2015 and my uncle passed away in 2016. Then my mom got sick in 2017 and passed away in May of 2018. With all of that going on I had to put of my research on hold. Everything was not complete and I just recently started it again with may blanks I needed to fill.
