"Tower...We'll be at the transmitter!"
The Great "Herky Hornet" Kidnapping Caper!
Of all the KROY-AM studio locations, 977 Arden Way may have been the most visible. The large street-side window allowed listeners to interact with the disc jockeys via an intercom speaker. Visitors would often camp out for hours as they sat in their cars with their radios blasting KROY, and return to the window for another song request. This picture window also allowed the Jocks to actually interact with listeners on a personal basis, making KROY one of the most “approachable” radio stations in the area.
While the studios were previously at 1010 11th Street above the Country Maid restaurant, Arden Way remains in the minds of many listeners as THE place to be on a Friday or Saturday night — or BOTH.
The studios were later moved to Old Sacramento, and a new team of disc jockeys and radio station staff began their history with KROY-AM and FM.
