The Sounds Of San Francisco

From the KGO Music Tower
Circa 1962

Sounds of San Francisco (LP Cover)

Narrated by Leslie G. Stein, also known as Les Crane (noted for his broadcasts from the legendary hungry i nightclub), this collection of music and spoken interludes was presented on an LP album with these liner notes:

“In January of 1962, KGO created a fantasy — a KGO ‘Music Tower’ … 81 stories high in the sky, looking over the bays and bridges of San Francisco. This windswept spire, built on sounds and suggestions, has captured the imagination of listeners everywhere. KGO personalities broadcast from the very top of this tower … and with the beautiful Bay Area below them, fill the moments between music with vivid descriptions of the many breath-taking views.”
