In 1989 the COL was still Lake Jackson as Z-107.5 KZFX, I remember hearing Baker Street by Gerry Raffety listening to it in my Granddad's garage with his B&W TV AM/FM radio tuned to that station well the top of the hour id was KZFX Lake Jackson, Houston Z 107. Wasn't KGOL on 107.3 first as a rimshot? Before KGOL wasn't the calls KJOJ 107.3?
Yes willdav, What is now 107.5 originally was @ 107.3. It moved, IIRC, when KWIC-Beaumont moved from 107.7 to 107.9 where KQQK now resides. 107.3 was never KJOJ. 106.9 was, but not 107.3. Original calls for the station were KLJT-Lake Jackson.
Thanks for jogging my memory - again. I remember when KWIC announced they were moving from 107.7 to 107.9, which allowed the move of 107.3 to 107.5. And the ill-fated move of KWIC from Fannett Road in Beaumont to Devers in its original poorly done manner, in which they were broadcasting to "the rabbits at the tower" according to my friends still at the KWIC studios which had been relocated to Major Drive. There were times after the move to Devers where we couldn't hear the station at all in Beaumont, though it was still on the air. The move to Devers was to get them a rimshot into the Houston market, but in its original configuration it didn't do that well either.
