1979/07/31 05:00 10Q on K-Hits 97. On this day KTNQ began broadcasting as KHTZ over 97.1 FM. The full crew of KTNQ moved en masse to KHTZ, and for the hours leading up to the 12 noon switchover, the KTNQ signal was broadcast simultaneously over 1020 AM and 97.1 FM. KHTZ had been running a country format, and that died with the KTNQ arrival. KTNQ itself became a Spanish format station at the noon switchover. Features Charlie Tuna, who continued on 'HTZ, Bob Morgan, who had been announcer on the country version of 'HTZ, and Dave Sebastian. Also featured is a guest appearance by Wolfman Jack, and we get to hear a side of him that we don't normally see when he's a DJ.

Includes the noon switchover at about the 3 hour, 6 minute mark.
