The Legendary KIOA Nine Forty logo Story and super jingle montage.

KIOA Series 15 "Yours Truly KIOA." Popular early 60's package used by many stations including WHB in Kansas City


KIOA Series 17 Mid-60's - KIOA's first use of the "KLIF" logo and "Good Guy" image. Note that the last cut is in Spanish. KIOA perpetrated a hoax; "Keep bull fighting out of Iowa," and during that time, they dropped the Spanish cut in on the air periodically.


KIOA Series 27 Mid to late 60's. The greatest Top-40 jingle package ever produced (Ray Dennis opinion), utilizing all male singers singing the lyrics with a distinctive super-high soprano (American Indian lady) in the accompaniment.


KIOA Series 27 Good Guy Weekend

KIOA Holidaze holiday cuts with mixed group rather than all male.

KIOA Series 27 re-sings. For cash call - etc.

KIOA "Home of the Goodguys"

KIOA Jock cuts - 1971

KIOA Solid Rock - 1972


The above Pams cuts were dubbed from reel to reel master tapes, courtesy of Peter McLane. and represent cuts from the packages that selected to exhibit at this time.

Editor's note: The actual tape was in excellent condition but the cuts were divided with leader tape and some of the splices came apart making it necessary to get out the splicing tape, razor blade and splicing block. Finding a roll of splicing tape in 2003 Des Moines was quite a trick.
