Is that "The" Spider Harrison from Sirius/Xm Hits 1?.
If so, could you please tell someone there to not repeat the weekend countdown so often?

It is a sad day to find a part of our lifestyle come to an end with the decision of KIDD management to terminate the 'Magic 63' music format.

Not only did we lose a wonderful library of pleasant music during our daily routines, we also lost the charm, warmth and talant of the broadcasting personalities.

Although this was a "Show me the money" business move with KIDD in hope of gaining a larger audience level, Monterey has just lost a lot of class. Sad.

So true! There are plenty of "oldies" stations. If that's what we wanted to listen to, we would. But Magic 63 has always had the best music ever made from Sinatra and Martin to Dorsey and Goodman. It's the end of an era.

I just learned of Magic 63's "destruction". What a shame!! It was one rado outlet where we could listen to GOOD music. I hope we will still be able to hear Ed on Saturday AM's. Hopefully, some sort of celebration and broadcast will take place on Doris Day's birthday. I have always looked forward to hearing her on her day...usually all day!
Thanks for the many enjoyable years of listening to Magic 63. Too bad it has to end.
