The Knac Sack

January 19, 1986

Regarding radio station KNAC's recent switch from new music to heavy metal:

What have they done to KNAC? For 15 years I have listened to them, as they were at the leading edge of adult progressive music.

From Ron McCoy and Jerry Longden to Dion and Captain Organic. The best music in the Southland.

Apparently, someone thinks drug-crazed delinquents aren't getting enough heavy metal--so out with the new, in with the old.

Now I must contend with the Three Stooges and Jack Webb stepping all over the music at a more immature KROQ.

Please, somebody bring back the KNAC!
