I worked for KWKR “The Fine Ninety-Nine Nine” back in 1984-85. Rick Nulton was our morning man, Operations Manager, and sales representative for the Leoti/Scott City/Tribune region. Since the FCC still required radio stations to broadcast from their city of license in those days, we maintained two separate studios. Rick did the morning show (6-9AM) out of the “main studio” in downtown Leoti. The rest of the day (9AM-1AM) originated from our “remote studio” on North 7th St. in Garden City. As a young jock, I admired Rick’s voice and production abilities which were far superior to my own. When he did a piece that I thought was particularly “good”, I’d dub the cart to a special cassette that I kept for that purpose.
“Hot Fun in the Summertime” was KWKR’s premiere summer promotion. It was held at Lake Scott State Park, just north of Scott City. A day of music, beer, food, beer, fun, beer, friends, and beer. Did I mention that the staff consumed a lot of beer at this event?
This was transferred from the original cart to cassette in the KIUL/KWKR production room. Source cassette was a TDK D90. As for Rick, he has spent the past 28 years as General Manager of Eagle Radio’s successful Great Bend cluster. He’s still a damn good voiceover and production talent, too!
