KWSS Radio Staff Photo (January 1983)

PHOTO: The original KWSS staff and management team, photographed at the El Paseo de Saratoga shopping center in January 1983, shortly after taking over control of the station. (It had been the world-famous KFAT 94½ prior to coming under new ownership.)

Jim Duncan, who served as chief engineer at both KFAT and KWSS, provided this photograph, which includes general manager Palmer Pyle (second from left, in baseball cap), program director Dave Van Stone (sixth from left, next to the woman on the W), morning duo Bill Kelly and Al Kline (peeking through the S’s), receptionist Shirley Sanchez (second from right) and sales manager Dayton Philips.

The station became KUFX (“K-Fox”) on March 4, 1991, and is currently KBAY.
