MIKE PHILLIPS SHOW- KFRC 1970
Mike Phillips KFRC San Francisco 8-1970
Engineer Phil Lerza Length 23:10
Show performed six a.m. to Noon on Saturday morning by a casual Mike Phillips. The audio processing was Pre-Durrough DAP. I believe it was three CBS AGC units split into three spectrums, Low, Med, High.
I was present, standing to the right of Mr. Lerza as he skillfully manipulated the controls. He executed each movement as Phillips in the sound proof control room, would smash the large button which would set off a buzzer in Engineering. Lerza rolls the next sequence 45, spot or jingle.
Mike is so meticulous that in the entire six hour shift, he slipped up on "Julie Do You Love Me" and that is all.
B.R. Bradbury had a powerful news projection. He delivered the news when Phillips stepped out of the studio for some coffee. He is gone as well.
Charlie Van Dyke arrived a little before noon to do some station promos. This was also engineered by Phil Lerza. Phil is no longer with us. He is missed as an engineer and station manger. He was friendly, loved tight sets and we love Phillip.
Mike Phillips began his career at KBPS Benson Polytechnic High School in Pdx.
KISN 1959 and KGW 1976 as program director.
We will show the Kisn Top 50 Hit survey showing Mike and the team. Rest in Peace.
In the hot summer night, I enjoy driving in California listening to a CD from Dave Diamond. The mind makes you think you are still in 1970.
What is your radio experience?
At this time in Arcata, California at KATA, I was Program Director, Music Director and P.M. drive for all the records I could eat. Chuck Weber
