Edition #926 February 26, 2017 BOOGIE BELL KIMN DENVER FEBRUARY 26, 1962 (PT. 2)
Let's boogie with Boogie Bell!
Glen "Boogie" Bell jocked
at the legendary KIMN from 1958 to 1963. The Denver station practically
owned its market, with a 56 share at one point. These were the golden years
of Top 40 radio on AM radio - FM was barely on the radar - and a rock 'n' roll station that appealed to adults as KIMN
did was pure ratings gold. The teens went to KIMN for the music and the
wacky deejays; the adults liked the sensational newscasts. The result was a
Top 40 radio colossus.
