July 2021update

 "Everything looks weird".  Yep, when downloading files it goes to a different, confusing page.  The Play button works correctly.

When I started doing this page, about 15 years ago, the provider to host the sound files is a company called 4share.  I'm having a really awful time getting them to take my money snd put us back on the paid service.

Their free one, goes to that other page, probably doesn't have all of the files and wants you to install other stuff.  Don't install anything.  Feel free to download the sound files.

It's not practical to recode the whole thing to use a different provider.

Hopefully they'll take my money...

If you haven't checked recently, I've added a bunch of show to the streaming station. "My Best Sounds" is also on the TuneIn and Live365 apps.

Charlie Tuna 1974


Charlie was a distinctive voice, waking the world for a quarter century.  I'm pretty sure no one else can make that claim.  It was a shame when we lost him.  Be sure to visit his website

Mary Turner 1992


It was a scandal.  In the early 80s when the network started the Mary Turner show.  Loud Rock and Roll.  What will the generals say?  We'll find out.  Mary brought her KMET show to the world and it was a very good thing.

Enchantment Of Music 1964

Over the years AFRTS presented a lot of classical music. For a lot of our listeners, it was the introduction to styles of music that they hadn't heard before. "Enchantment of Music" was originally from KCBH-FM, Beverly Hills. They presented their shows in "the matchless fidelity of frequency modulation".   The station was also the first one for The Real Don Steele.

Did we ever actually run these on FM stations?

KCBH sounds like a very interesting place Here's their tribute website

Joe Allison 1969


Joe Allison brought country music to the world on the Country Corner.  Before Joe, the music was mostly "hillbilly".  As a writer, producer, performer and DJ he brought it to the rest of America.  Here's a 1969 visit.
