Transcription Mystery Disc #28
1310 KZIP-AM in Amarillo is a farm station today, and has probably changed less than most stations in the intervening 50 years or so since these spots ran. they're owned today by Tejas Broadcasting. KZIP used to be apart of the Stone Country Network with KDAV-AM, KPEP-AM and KPIK-AM. The Stone in the Stone Network was pappy Dave stone, who liked to consider himself the founder of country music as a radio format. At the very least Pappy founded KZIP in 1953, there's a little debate on the rest and I'll write about that another time.
