San Diego Radio History Honored in Santee on August 28
“KCBQ Remembered” historic monument dedication on site of original studios in Santee
(Santee) – Dedication ceremonies for a monument honoring one of San Diego’s all-time great radio stations and the many air personalities that brought it to life will take place at the former KCBQ AM 1170 studio and transmitter facility in Santee on Saturday, August 28 at 1170 AM (12:10pm). The location where KCBQ once stood, 9416 Mission Gorge Road in Santee, is now occupied by retailers Kohl’s and Lowe’s.
The monument features names of over one hundred of the talented air personalities and newscasters who were heard on the station during this period.
The monument will be unveiled by Mayor Voepel and legendary longtime KCBQ overnight disc jockey Jack Vincent, who was with the station when the facility was constructed in 1958.
