KKOK-FM 95.7 Morris Minnesota Lee Smith 1982

KKOK was the FM sister to KMRS-AM 1230 in Morris.  Sometimes, the two stations maintained separate programming.  Other times, they simulcasted.  I believe the Lee Smith program was either delivered via satellite and/or automated (?)  You can hear a “blip” as the local ID comes on after Lee says “Eagles, and I Can’t Tell You Why.”  This is how it was originally broadcast and not a result of me editing the aircheck.  This show was broadcast nightly on both KKOK and KMRS.

I received this from Apple Valley, using a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver, Winegard 10 element FM yagi antenna, Belden ultra low loss RG59 coaxial cable, and an Alliance rotor.  The recording was made using a Technics stereo cassette deck and Scotch Highlander 90 tape.

    Lee Smith was syndicated by BPI in Seattle. It was on reel to reel tape. I think some of the reels were announced, some unannounced. There were a couple of other announcers also available. And another set of DJs for country, etc. A lot of stations ran BPI programming, which eventually was bought out by Jones.

    KMRS was the original Hedberg station, put on the air in the 1950s by Paul Hedberg’s parents.

    I always thought Paul ran a classy operation when he owned KEEZ/KLSS/KUOO. When I was at KKEZ & KRIT, we competed with him in the Algona/Emmetsburg/Garner area.

  3. Hosting

    Four times an hour you ll hear morning updates covering local and regional news, sports, and weather. KKOK is the broadcast home to the Minnesota Vikings, the University of Minnesota, Morris Cougar football, and the best match-ups in local sports from schools throughout West Central Minnesota.
