Top Ten Tuesday: KPHO (910 AM, Phoenix AZ), 6/15/59

KPHO in Phoenix, Arizona is now KGME, a Fox Sports radio station. KPHO moved to 910 AM in 1949 and played Top 40 music until sometime in the 1960’s, when they switched to an all-news format. They were sold in 1972 and switched to a country format, eventually working its way to a sports format. Here’s their Top Ten from June 15, 1959.

  1. Love these dogs especially Johnny Horton , Paul Anka and really like ” Wonderful You”. It’s quite s nice song. I am not for the Connie Francis and thst 2nd song is quite weird with all the jungle noises. It reminds me of s tide sy Crysyal Beach where those similar noises could be heard. I would see a native with s man ‘ s head being taken out of a pot. You would just ride in the boat as it took uou to see the jungle.
