Francisco's original 1260/KYA first burst on the
Bay Area scene with the
greatest Top 40 music
played anywhere. Over the next quarter century, popular
personalities like Emperor Gene Nelson, Russ "The Moose"
Syracuse, "Big Daddy" Tom Donahue, Johnny Holliday, Tom Campbell, Chris Edwards,
Bwana Johnny, Mike Cleary, Gary Shaffer and Ed Hider and
helped elevate the original
1260 KYA to legendary status.
