Top Ten Tuesday: KBEQ (104.3 FM, Kansas City, KS (MO)), 5/22/75

KBEQ-FM started out as KBEY-FM in November 1960, playing easy listening and Big Band music. In 1970, they changed to an "underground/progressive" format, then in August 1973 changed its call letters to KBEQ and spent twenty years as a Top 40 station. They switched to country in 1993, and have been a country station since. Here’s their Top Ten from May 22, 1975.

10 – Tony Orlando & Dawn, “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You)”

  1. End of my junior year in college, John. I think I heard “Killer Queen” on the radio all summer while working for the Post Office. I know all of these and really like several. Too bad we lost Freddy Mercury and John Denver before they could make more music.
