SHARE KRSP-FM TO AIR 16 HOURS OF CONTINUOUS ROCK MUSIC

KRSP (FM-103.5) will be playing what may be the longest continuous stretch of uninterrupted radio music ever in Utah on Monday, Jan. 1, when it broadcasts 16 straight hours of rock 'n' roll from 8 a.m. until midnight.

"Rock 103" program director Ron Bowen believes the 16 consecutive hours will definitely set the Utah radio record for solid, uninterrupted music.Also on New Year's Day, sister station KRSP (AM-1060) will feature "Skinny" Johnny Mitchell counting down the top 12 songs of the 1960s on his regular "Top 12 at 12" show.

"KRSP-AM listeners are in the baby boom generation, and with so much use of nostalgic music in today's movies and commercials, this music is just as popular as it was in the 1960s," said Steve Carlson, KRSP operations manager.

New Year's Eve will also feature special music with KRSP-FM playing the top seven rock albums of all time on its "On the Seventh Day" show (7 p.m. until midnight), as determined by hundreds of listeners who mailed in votes for their favorite albums of all time.
