  1. I think even Leykis knew that AC stations didn’t play Percy Faith in 1997–not even Bonneville stations. Can I assume that Bonneville had bought KPIX? (And does Leykis consider the Cars “pussy music”?)

    • Yeah Bonneville did buy them out. Z 95.7 was a good top 40 station.

  2. Leykis also closed out KLSX 12 years later.
