KSOL 1450, San Francisco
Soul Twenty Power Survey
September 15, 1970
This is presumed to be the very last soul music survey
produced by KSOL (1450 kHz.) in San Francisco prior to the station's
switch to a middle-of-the-road format on September 21, 1970. Faced with
strong competition from cross-bay rival KDIA, KSOL abandoned the R&B
format, which dated back two decades to when the station was known as
KSAN. On January 27, 1971, it changed call letters to KEST.
The "KSOL Team Of Soul Experts" shown on the survey
included Tam Henry, Bert Bell (Herb Campbell), Tony King, Frankie "M," Johnny Quick and
Ronnie Williams. At the top of the chart for the second straight week is
Aretha Franklin's "Don't Play That Song."
