Welcome to a visit from not that long ago:

Kris Erik Stevens - 1978


Kris Erik Stevens left Michigan to take over Chicago radio and was a star at WCFL and WLS when that really meant something. At WLS he worked with AFVN vet Gary Gears. After Chicago he went for the bigger challenge of Los Angeles and won. He was with AFRTS before and after disco. Remember disco? And he's still around and sounding even younger.

AFN 40th Anniversary



In 1983, AFN was 40 and published a booklet about their history. It's a great history of the early years of the network and writeups of all of the stations. They do say that the Alaska network was first (It was really the Canal Zone). A very good read.

Straight ahead, don't bunch up...
