KGO-AM celebrates 30 years on top
Here's an MP3 that in 3 minutes and 10 seconds attempts to summarize the last 30 years of KGO NewsTalk 810. On it is Joe Starkey's dramatic call of The Play ... you know, "the most amazing, sensational, dramatic, heart rending, exciting, thrilling finish in the history of college football." It also includes Stan Burford reporting on Oct. 17, 1989: "I'll do it slowly and I'll do it once. East Bay, Cypress Section, double decker of the Nimitz has collapsed. Upper deck onto the lower deck." And it has the sign-offs of KGO's best known talent over the years. The sound bite is part of the station's celebration of its 30th year as the Bay Area's top rated radio station.
