Music hath charm!... Whether it’s a pretty ballad, up-tempo piece
or beat-with-a-rock, there’s a favorite for every gal and guy
listening! Frankly, we like matching music to listeners -- mixing
Rodgers and The Rays with Shore and Sinatra -- to please all tastes!
When we say “OK, THIS IS B.K.” -- we hope it’s OK with YOU, too!
Give us a listen at 570kc on POP MUSIC, 2:00 to 4:00 PM, and MUSIC
