Just hearing that name, brings back smiles and a lot more than just a little bit of heaven.


I have been so very lucky to have meet, spoken with, and conversed a bit

with many of the stations DJ Staff:

Cynthia Fox; Jim Ladd; Paraquat Kelley; Raechel Donahue; Rick Scarry; David Perry; Jack Snyder;
Gabriel Wisdom; Ace Young; Shadoe Stephens; Rick Lewis; Jeff Gonzer; Ralph Bellamy;

and the legendary Dr. Demento.


Its this station, these DJ’s, that introduced me to and the first time I heard the following 4 albums that would walk with me and be part of my entire life thereafter:

YES: Close To The Edge

Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti

Pink Floyd: The Wall

Music, especially these 4 albums, would forever have a dramatic impact for my entire adult life.


And KMET, while on the air, was indeed the place to be.

Sadly, I never took a personal picture of either/any of the KMET buildings or studios.

This is the only picture taken off the internet I have been able to find of the KMET building.

On Friday, July 10, 2009 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m, L.A.’s 100.3 FM “The Sound” became KMET, just for one day, as we all enjoyed “Finally a KMET Friday.” Jeff Gonzer, Ace Young, Pat “Paraquat” Kelley, Jack Snyder, Dr. Demento and others from the Mighty Met recreated the music, the magic, the spirit and fun of LA’s original album rock station. Sadly missed was Jim Ladd, Denise Westwood, Cynthia Fox, and Bob Coburn, left out of the party by the “fuddy duddy management” over at KLOS. It was a day of celebration of what was the mightiest radio station ever in Los Angeles, 94.7 KMET. Whooya!

It was a little bit of heaven.
