How Radio Was Done Part 91

Solo
One last time for 1986 radio. This time we cover broadcasting from a lot of stations and DJs of the year, as well as a lot of music made in 86 that none of them played and a little they did. Listen to the last day of KHJ in L.A., various talk radio shows and their profanity bleepers, KFRCs 20th anniversary, the rise of Hip Hop and the Beastie Boys, coinciding with the rise of the PMRC and warning labels for sex and violence. We rock out more than usual as the beat goes on.
