"KRNQ Rock in Stereo" Jingles

In the fall of 1974, Stauffer Communications purchased KRNT and KRNT-FM from Cowles Communications.

Cowles had put KRNT-FM on the air in 1970 and had run various automated formats until the sale to Stauffer. Stauffer changed the call letters to KRNQ, with the nickname of Q-102 and purchased the TM Rock In Stereo automated programming package, which was produced by programmer George Burns (not the Gracie Allen George).
