You may remember him best as a reporter on KGO-TV (Channel 7). But back in the 1960s, John Lester was a rock’n’roll disc 118jockey at KLIV (1590 kc.) in San Jose.

KLIV, which has been on the air from San Jose since September 1946 — it was originally KSJO, a 1000-watt daytime-only station — kliv_norman-decal_1968_x125changed hands on July 1, 1967 (four months before this broadcast) when it was acquired by two former Rochester, N.Y., radio executives, Robert S. Kieve and James M. Trayhern, Jr., who had incorporated as Empire Broadcasting. Four decades later, Bob Kieve remained as the owner of KLIV, one of the few independent radio station owners left in the region.
