Laurie Allen


Haven't had the chance to present Laurie Allen yet. These are great. Laurie's another Minnesotan, like Jim Pewter and was a LA radio star. KIIS, 1982; KNX/fm, 1983-84; KMGG, 1984-86; KPWR, 1986-94; KKGO, 2008-10. For 11 years, Laurie worked at the Bright AC format at Dial-Global (Westwood One Radio Networks) until late 2008. She does weekends at KKGO, "Go Country."

Laurie played a lot of great gold from the 70s and 80s.

Greetings Laurie Allen


Last week I had located some Laurie Allen shows that are on their way here, so the hunt began once again, to say hi and ask if it'd be okay. She's still working in Los Angeles radio and sent some nice emails. Hear Laurie as soon as the programs arrive!

Kaiserslautern Germany, May 1977

Here's another great chunk of tape. Charlie Tuna explains the command, piece of a newscast and a piece of AFN Today... Not very long but neat.

AFN to drop over-the-air signal in 2 countries

Once again it's the end of an era..


WIESBADEN, Germany — Some American Forces Network viewers in Germany and Belgium could soon be seeing nothing but static when they turn on the TV.

The Army’s 5th Signal Command, which is responsible for over-the-air TV transmitters that broadcast AFN, plans to turn off over-the-air signal in the two countries starting next month. The change will affect only those who receive the broadcast via a television antenna. Viewers who own AFN decoders will not notice any change, AFN officials say.
