The final hour of rock’n’roll on KSFX (103.7 FM) in San Francisco, with Richard Gossett holding court until Jim Dunbar (photo, right) and Ted Wygant move in with the rest of the morning news team and the station becomes, officially, KGO-FM.

Dunbar (2006), Wygant (2009) and Gossett (2017) are all members of the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame. KGO Newstalk 810 AM was awarded Legendary Station status in 2010.

The text for this exhibit is currently being developed. However, you may listen to the audio portion of the presentation by clicking on the link below.

KSFX Becomes KGO-FM 104 (May 3, 1982)

Richard Gossett pilots KSFX through its final minutes. At about 49 minutes into the recording, the switch is made, and KGO (810 AM) begins its news/talk simulcast on 103.7 FM with the ABC Radio Network’s national newscast.

Keith Richards on KSFX (April 15, 1982)

With just a few weeks left in KSFX’s history, the station proclaims that “before we start talkin’, we’re gonna do plenty of rockin’.” This recording from Mike Schweizer’s collection begins at about 9:50 PM on Keith Richards’ night shift. (No, not that Keith Richards.)


Special thanks to Mike Schweizer for the recordings included in this exhibit.
