Runaway Radio 101 KLOL documentary screening list

What music was KLOL playing in 1971?


I’ve been getting questions concerning what 101 KLOL Houston was playing in the 1970s. Thanks to what was called the K-101 “Music Sheet,” we have definite proof.

The K-101 Music Sheet was a pamphlet that I guess was available for free at Houston record stores.

In the K-101 Music Sheet number 1, which covered March 15 to April 15, 1971, we see who the on air staff was at the time and the records they were playing.
