KRRK-AM 1590 East Grand Forks MN Curt Samson 1983

Kay-Double-R-Kay was “the home of the Forks’ favorite country.” It was an AM/FM simulcast, the AM station having 1,000 watts on 1590. KRRK-FM is featured in a separate exhibit. The FM station was only 3,000 watts at the time and had a very limited coverage area.

The first jock identifies himself as Curt Samson. Not sure who the second one is. If you know, please tell us. This was recorded from my grandparents’ house in Michigan, ND, using a Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo unit. Source tape is a TDK D90.
