The Galaxy Gang invites those who grew up to the music of KCBQ-AM to come on down to Kohls/Lowes parking lot in Santee (original site of KCBQ's transmission towers) this Saturday, Aug. 28th. at 12:10 p.m. We'll be dedicating a monument to station owners and employees that worked at KCBQ from 1958 to 1978. Please come join us, and catch up with "Shotgun Tom" Kelly (emcee of the ceremony), who will honor AM rock radio notables including Charlie & Harrigan, and Jack Vincent. Some of KCBQ's legenday personalities include Dex Allen, Harry "Happy Hare", Charlie Tuna, Bob Shannon, Perry Allen, Bobby Ocean, Lee "Baby" Sims, Jimmy Rabbitt, Rich "Brother" Robbin, Brian Roberts, China Smith, Chuck Browning, and Harry Scarborough. Shotgun will talk about these folks and many others behind the mic and behind the scenes over the 30 years that made 50,000 watt KCBQ-AM one of the most popular Rock and Roll stations in Southern CA.
