KDIA Lucky 13, Oakland
Top 25 Music Survey #185
January 8, 1965
Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is" takes the #1 spot on the
KDIA Top 25 music survey for January 8, 1965. The station, still located
in the old "Radio
Village" complex near Lake Merritt, will move later in the year to
new studios near the Bay Bridge Toll Plaza.
Billed as "The Voice of Today" on this survey, but
perhaps better known by its "Lucky 13" slogan, KDIA could claim at this
time one of the finest announcing teams to ever grace the Bay Area's
airwaves, including Rosko (William Roscoe Mercer), George Oxford, Belva
Davis, Roland Porter, Don Barksdale and John Hardy.
ORIGINAL SIZE: 8-1/2x14 inches.
