Might as well re-post this item from last summer, the first time XM Satellite Radio's "Sonic Sound Salutes" paid homage to golden-oldie KLIF-AM (1190) on its channel devoted to the 1960s. From the looks of what just arrived in the in-box, it's the same press release and everything. So I'll use the same headline. So there.
In any case, here's a sneak peak of what you'll most likely find as XM takes a trip down Amnesia Lane on July 18 with five hours' worth of programming consisting of, among other things, "Charlie and Harrigan in the morning [and] The Weird Beard cruising NW Highway for a coke ... and welcome KLIF’s 40 Star Survey." Show runs from 3 to 8 p.m. a week from Friday, and non-XM subscribers can sneak a listen gratis by clicking here. Also, who knew there were T-shirts and caps and mugs? --Robert Wilonsky
