  2. Best of the Best

    Posted by jeff iler

    My beginning in radio started with an AM radio in the 70's. I was a listener with my ears enjoying KMBY, KDON and KFRC. Yeah that's right, northern California radio! Eventually working radio in the Salinas/Monterey market. The basement tapes are a fantastic journey thru the age of awesome radio! It shows what I've always said about working on the air...it beats working for a living! Good stuff!
