    On December 26, “Jack-FM,” 100.7 KFMB, began a nine-day “Wheel of Formats” stunt. Day one featured a full day of AC/DC songs and was followed by a day of Bob Marley, then 1980s hits, Van Halen, outlaw country, “hair bands,” adult contemporary, blues and adult standards. At 10 this morning, the station switched to a rock format. The first songs played were The Spirit Of Radio by Rush, I Wanna Be Sedated by the Ramones, Alive by Pearl Jam, I Melt With You by Modern English and Baba O’Riley by the Who.

    KFMB-FM is being programmed by former 91X program director Garrett Michaels, who had also programmed alternative stations in Seattle, Detroit and Philadelphia. The station is now known as “KFM – BFM.” Judging by the first hour of music, I’m thinking it could also be known as “Clone of KGB-FM.”

    That’s amusing from the perspective of that being the way the legal ID was given during all the years of “B-100”, made necessary because Midwest (in a philosophy which appears not to have changed in the intervening 40 years) refused to let Bobby Rich change the calls when they went top-40 in 1975.

    Mike Hagerty explained it in a comment on Ray Randolph’s KHJ blog back in 2008:

    How about that. That’s how the station legal was being done 40 years ago on B-100, as explained by Mike Hagerty on Ray Randolph’s KHJ blog back in 2008.
