St. Louis’ KWK was the very first radio station I can remember hearing as a kid. Apparently they decided that they weren’t going to play rock & roll music. Variety Magazine, in its January 22, 1958 issue noted, “St. Louisans Heave of Rock n’ Roll”. I don’t remember this at all. But it might be why I started listening to KXOK which endorsed Rock & Roll all the way. I spent my teen years listening to KXOK. It should be noted that the original KWK has been long gone from the airwaves in St. Louis. The call letters were purchased by another company but is no longer on the air here.
