KHJ Real Don Steele 1969

 
Years ago I had heard about a series of albums that were distributed to the troops overseas.  Top 40 radio broadcasts, off-line with commercials.  Great idea!  I finally located the Don Steele one. The album gives no idea who was responsible. 
 
From the label:"A fifty minute transcription of an actual broadcast on KHJ radio in Los Angeles, especially produced and distributed free as a public service for the men and women of the United States Armed Forces." If the government was involved, there'd be a credit.  If this was a KHJ project, I can't believe they wouldn't say something about listening to the station when you got home.
 
Somewhere I had heard Cola Cola was somehow involved, but again no credit.  Do you remember these?
 

Weird, but some great radio.
