"Had Ron Jacobs and I ever had to face off against each other for the affection of South California radio listeners, the victor would unquestionably have been the guy who could get his hands on the other guy's memos. Respect turns to great affection and even admiration when you spend some time with the mind of a master."Chuck Blore
FAMED PD OF KFWB; AWARD WINNING COMMERCIAL PRODUCER
The first time I metRon Jacobs in the 1960s he floored me his intellect. I was directing aradio conference in New York City. Ron asked how long I wanted hiskeynote speech. I blurted out, "Twenty-one minutes." Ron presented a phenomenal talk--exactly 21 minutes. Right then, I became a Jacobs fan. At KHJ, he blazed new programming areas, which soon sweptcoast-to-coast and around the world. His epic special 'The History of Rock'n'Roll' is a monument to music. Ron Jacobs one of radio's truly great creative geniuses." Claude Hall
"THIS BUSINESS OF RADIO PROGRAMMING"
"I first heard of Ron Jacobs when he got to KHJ and I was at KRLA. What he did at KHJ still astonishes me. When time came to launch my concept of acountdown show I called Ron. He worked on every detail of 'American Top 40' thesame way he did at 'Boss Radio' and contributed much to the success of both.Anything he has to say is worth checking out."Casey Kasem

From the Author
I have always been upset that so many people could not afford the455-page paperback book. This eBook indeed is from the inside. It will put to rest some of the conflicting stories regarding legendary KHJ, still studied, talked and argued about 47-years later. It contains never releasedpictures by famous rock photographer Henry Diltz and too many goodies to list here. The eBook has a Table of Contents plus two Lexicons, onelisting people, the other features inside stories from the firstDrake-Chenault "Boss" stations.
I was the original Program Director of 93/KHJ in Los Angeles, co-creator of American Top 40, producer of the CRUISIN' album series and breederof the KGB Chicken in San Diego. KHJ: Inside Boss Radio includes a fascinating oral history of 93/KHJ, my personal anecdotes about mydays in Hollywood radio from 1965 through 1969, and an extremely rarecompilation of KHJ in-house memos, graphics and photos.
