KWKR-FM 99.9 Garden City KS Big Cheese Pizza 1985

I came across this and had to include it for nostalgia, if nothing else.  Big Cheese Pizza was a regional chain, concentrated mainly in central and western Kansas.  I believe there is at least one surviving example in Salina.  But the others in Garden City, Dodge City, Hays, etc., are long gone.

I spent MANY afternoons at the Big Cheese buffet in Garden City during the time I worked for KWKR (1984-85.)  Radio folks tend to gravitate towards places that offer all you can eat for a cheap price.  We’re poor and we love to eat.  Sure wish that $2.99 price was still valid today!

This was recorded directly off the studio monitor using TDK D90 tape.  The cheap Realistic mono recorder ran slow, so the speed is a bit fast on playback.
