Witchita Radio Station Album KLEO

KLEO Double Gold
KLEO Double Gold Wichita

KLEO Double Gold The Big 1480 (yes folks, that’s AM radio), Custom Fidelity Company Inc., a part of Liberty/ UA (United Artists). CFS 2315-2. I’d say this is late 1960s. The songs range from 1961 to 1969. Unfortunately, this is not my album.

The photo is of downtown Wichita, Kansas. The big round building on the right is Century II where they have conventions and concerts. Once in high school, we took buses there for something, a three-hour trip, and that night Foreigner was going to be in concert. This was right after the release of 4. I almost skipped the bus to stay for the concert. My grandparents live in Wichita and I figured they might find a way to get me home. I would only miss a day of school. Alas, I didn’t do it.

The albums start off strong with The Shocking Blue, but there’s some fairly tepid songs. A few high spots include Billy Stewart, The Music Explosion, The Turtles, The Intruders, Jay and the Americans, Mel Carter, Canned Heat, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Little Anthony and the Imperials.
