Bob Kingsley 1979


If you've been around here for a while, you've heard Bob Kingsley.  He did a rock show for the network in the mid-70s.  After that it was worldwide fame with American Country Countdown.

Bob was one of us, he did a tour at the Iceland station.  Rumor has it that he carved his name into the board.  There have been a lot of requests for this.  Bob Kingsley 1979
