|Bob Harper was KQV's Program
Director from May 1970 until December 1973. Bob came from WSAI in Cincinnati
and succeeded Mike McCormick at KQV.
During Bob's time at KQV,
the station transitioned from a teen oriented top 40 to an adult top 40.
KQV continued to use PAMS jingles while Bob Harper was pd. Grid packages were used including the Music Power cuts. PAMS series 42A, 43, 44, WRC, Clyde, Q and Phoenix were on the air. As KQV morphed into a more adult sound, 14 began to disappear from the jingles as it was felt that 14 emphasized 'for teen'.
KQV promotional giveaways included the Ca$h Call, a 1970 Summer Yellow Mustang, a 1971 Dodge Charger, and the KQV $25,000 Fantasy.
