“93Q” KKBQ becomes “92.9 Easy Country”

KKBQ stopped playing CHR/Rock at midnight September 19, 1991 and stunted with the sound of the ocean for 6 hours straight with a time check to “Houston’s newest radio station” every 15 minutes. (actually a few minutes after the ocean sounds began it appears that maybe the board operator rebeled against the flip because the music starts again, he manages to play about 4 songs before the sound of the ocean returns… I’ll send this one later) This file picks up on the minute before the launch. Then at 6am in a live remote from The River Oaks Country Club, the general manager says a few words (the same old spiel about “doing months of market research” and “this is what you asked for”) then does a countdown thats followed by a montage of country songs that feature the word “easy” launching the new 92.9 Easy Country.
