NOTE TO READERS:
I am having eye surgery this week and won't be posting new stuff for a few days.
This is a updated story from the blog archives. It was originally posted December 12, 2014.
Today KUNM, Albuquerque airs freeform music every weekday afternoon. The reason is what happened in May 1987. Management announced upcoming changes in KUNM'a program schedule including moving the freeformers to overnights. That's when all hell broke loose…
GM Tim Singleton and PD Patrick Conley had the right idea but they were in the wrong place at wrong time.
Singleton moved on to better situations and retired at the end of 2013 from WBBA, West Lafayette, Indiana. I don't know where Patrick Conley is now. The freeform hosts are still on the air at KUNM.
