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 granite monument features photos of the KCBQ building which housed studios, offices and transmitters, as well as the station’s six 200 foot transmitting towers which broadcast what was for many years San Diego’s only 50,000 watt AM signal.
The monument commemorates the period between 1958 and 1978 when the station featured a “Top 40” music format. It was the most popular radio station in San Diego and had a national reputation for its programming excellence.

The monument features names of over one hundred of the talented air personalities and newscasters who were heard on the station during this period.

Many of those former KCBQ air personalities including “Shotgun Tom” Kelly, Paul “Charlie” Menard and Irv Harrigan, Gary Allyn, Gary Kelley, Neil Ross, Sonny West, as well as behind the scenes staff are expected to attend. Also attending are Santee Mayor Randy Voepel and Richard Bartell, President of Bartell Hotels and son of broadcaster Lee Bartell who built the original KCBQ facility. 

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.
The monument is supported by private contributors, designed by Seamen-Poe Monument Company, and installed by Charco Construction Company. The public is invited to witness the unveiling and meet and greet their favorite “Q” personalities.
