KSAN 1450, San Francisco
Tuff Tunes Music Survey
July 1, 1963


Here come “The Tuff Tunes On The Hot Spot” for the first week of July 1963, straight from KSAN (1450 AM) in San Francisco, with Little Stevie Wonder’s “Fingertips” at the top of the chart. Two other all-time R&B classics, Marvin Gaye’s “Pride and Joy” and Doris Troy’s “Just One Look,” fill the second and third slots.

The first-class KSAN radiomen at this point in time include Mike Dix, working under the guise of Jumpin’ George after the station won the right to keep George Oxford from using the moniker in a contentious lawsuit with rival KDIA. Rounding out the crew are Chuck “Bugs” Scruggs, Herb Campbell (a/k/a Bert Bell) and Rockin’ Lucky.
