1260 KYA Survey (Feb. 4, 1966)

Motown and the British Invasion, Surf and Broadway are on the charts at 1260/KYA in February 1966, but it's Lou Christie from Pittsburgh, Pa., at the top with "Lightnin' Strikes," displacing the Beatles and their double-sided 45 hit, "We Can Work It Out" and "Day Tripper."

In the early months of 1966, the men of KYA include Gene Nelson (6-10 a.m.), Ed Hider (10 a.m.-2 p.m.), Johnny Holliday (2-6 p.m.), Tony Bigg (6-10 p.m.), Tommy Saunders (10 p.m.-midnight) and Russ "The Moose" Syracuse (midnight-6 a.m.). Recent arrival Jim Washburn is KYA's utility player, filling in on vacations and weekends.

KYA was in the final months of ownership by Churchill Broadcasting, which would sell the station to AVCO Broadcasting of California for $4.4-million in August.
