In June, BARHOF celebrated San Jose’s 1590 KLIV as our Legendary Station Award recipient for 2017.
The Broadcast Legends inducted the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame‘s Class of 2017 on Saturday, September 23, at the Basque Cultural Center in South San Francisco.
John Mack Flanagan should be in the BAHOF for sure.
And he should be in BARHOF, too!
Great entries! Guessing BABES / SBE will be doing the engineer again this year?
Tim, the Engineer selection by SBE Chapter 40 this year is Dan Ethen — a splendid choice, indeed!
VERY surprised to see Harold Camping!
Many people are surprised to see that he was nominated, but keep in mind that he helped grow fledgling KEAR from a single, struggling FM into the sprawling Family Radio network.
Congratulations especially to Michael, Doug & Rich
Sorry, Lee Jones, as well
[…] 2017 Hall of Fame […]
Congrats Rich Walcoff! I knew way back in the early/mid 80’s, while working with you in OC that you were and are a Hall of Famer and good person too.
