Joe Collins left KQIV in Oct. of 1973 and one month later
landed a job on-air at KMET in Los Angeles. In 1974, Shadoe
Stevens became Program Director and promoted Joe to the position
of Music Director and Joe also eventually became the 10pm-2am host
in the evenings. He became Program Director of KFIG in Fresno in
March of '76. One ironic coincidence was, Joe immediately hired
former KQIV personality Jeff Clarke to do
Joe moved back to his
home town of San Luis Obispo to restore his house there, as well
as program KSLY-FM for 4 years from 1982 until '86, then returned
to Fresno to several radio jobs, then moved into television,
becoming an independent sales representative for the UPN
television network station in Fresno.
Joe today owns his own
advertising agency, hosts a Saturday morning jazz show on KAAT-FM
in Fresno called "Breakfast at Joe's", and is in excellent health
and spirits at the young age of 58. Joe is also going to get
married to Adele McAndrews, who he began "dating" back in 1979.
When asked, "Why has it taken you guys so long?" Joe answered, "We
thought we should kick the tires a bit before buying it."

Update of 5 NOV 11
Joe Collins is 65 years old, married Adele McAndrews in 2006,
and from 2006 thru 2011 hosted a weekly Rhythm and Blues radio
program in Fresno and Los Angeles called "The "Rhythm and Blues
Chronicles." The show ended in late August after running
for six years.
Joe still owns a Fresno advertising agency, Joe Collins
Productions, and is still the voice for several San Joaquin
Valley businesses. Today he is semi-retired, but is
working on a new project that may surface soon. Joe still
owns his home in San Luis Obispo.

Update from Faith, 5 NOV 11
Wow - these seven years flew by! What in the heck is on my head,
that orange shirt and stylish mandala are sure to make a comeback!
OMG, make it go away! I am working at the U of O in Eugene and
returned to my documentary roots. After failing my Second Phone
license numerous times (even with Joel's math tutoring), I never
would have believed I would become a Techie - but I do love the
computer age. I recently completed a documentary and restoration of
original 16mm film shot between 1930 - 1941 in Cottage Grove. I am
now completing editing on 15 hours of interviews with many people
who appeared in the films as children and teens. Their stories are
compelling and inspiring, including the son of a survivor of the
Titanic, and several WWII veterans who came from this small timber
town and went to the four corners of the world.
drowning in the Coast Fork River on a little kayak trip, I decided to
focus on fulfilling some old aspirations. I joined a garage band as lead
singer (Bark Shanty) which has been great fun. Due to time constraints
(and perhaps old age) we have cut our performances to a few special annual
events at the Axe and Fiddle - a bit of Floggin' Molly St. Patrick's Day,
and a heapin' helpin' of etouffe for Mardi Gras and other mystical
occasions. I attached a
to an original tune written by Rob Murtaugh and will let Cab
Calloway and Betty Boop provide the personification.
KQIV remains a fond memory, other than having to view the terrifying
ghosts of my fashion disaster past. All the best to all the

"J.R." Miller managed to contact Norman Flint and below is a portion
of an email from Norman after he viewed this site.....
Well ... I've just invested the last 90 minutes traveling
down 'memory lane' - I know I'm not the first to say, Thank You!
Having had the good fortune to have been many places some
only dream of; WCBS-FM's entry into the 'underground' in '69 where I
first met Steve O'Shea, to Toronto and Kharma Productions with John
and Yoko, to the Legendary KGB here in San Diego, KQ4 has
always been the mist in the magic that beckons ..... About a year
after leaving CBS, Steve saw me walking the streets in San Francisco
and told me he was looking for me and that I should come to this new
FM in the Portland area. I brought Joe's furniture up with me ...
RE: The Concert Page - I don't remember which one it was,
but I have a picture of my 5 year old daughter at a concert I emceed
holding an answer to the 'Love It Or Leave It' Nixon Era bumper
stickers - I had printed 500 of them and was giving them away at the
concert - They read 'America We Stayed And Changed It'... I'll send
it to you for your files.

Gloria (Johnson) is one of Portland's most
well-known and best-loved DJs. Below is just a
taste of her memories of KQ4.
"Spending a whole night by myself in the
middle of an ice storm trying to do a show from a transmitter shack
out in the boonies. One turntable, a stack of albums and a
hand-held mic. No clock. Had to trust someone would come
and rescue me in the morning when my shift was over."

Michael "The Crazy Greek"
Jock / Production
SEP 04, Updated 5 NOV 11)
Mike "The Crazy Greek" Sakellarides was one of the favorite jocks at
KQ4 because of his easy, laid-back style and warm voice.
Mike left KQ4 for an opening as public affairs producer, airborne
traffic reporter, and weekend DJ at 62 KGW, and we all wondered if
he would use his real name. That was back in the days when the
rule for popular radio was: "three syllables, non-ethnic."
Well, true to form, KGW grabbed the jock jingle package they
circulated between their King Broadcasting properties in Seattle,
Spokane, and Portland, and gave him the choice of using "Andy
Barber" or "Mark Stevens." Mike chose Mark Stevens because he
felt more comfortable with it, and, at least, he got to keep his
KGW did allow Mike to use his real name on his weekly public affairs
program "Speaking Freely," and so, every Sunday night he would segue
from zany "Mark Stevens on a Great Northwest Weekend" to the
pre-recorded Mike Sakellarides on "Speaking Freely" with the mayor
of Portland, or whoever the newsmaker of the week may have been.
Over 18 months, no one ever called the station or guessed the two
hosts were one and the same person!
In 1976, Mike and his wife moved to Los Angeles where he spent the
next six years surviving four format changes at Cap Cities KPOL/KZLA
AM & FM. In 1982 he was selected to host the midday show by
consultant Mary Catherine Sneed for Cox Broadcasting's 'New Coast
103' where he remained working the next 18 years, and then another
seven years for new owner Clear Channel until he was let go along
with a morning host and traffic reporter in November 2007.
Encouraged by a friend, Mike pursued teaching media at Fullerton
College in 2008 until Gov. Schwarzenegger cut nearly a billion
dollars in state college funding, and he was let go.
Mike then was hired by Saul Levine's Mount Wilson Broadcasting to
host the revival of a standards format on RETRO 1260. Mike was
let go after his year-long contract, and Levine switched to
A week after his departure, Mike's long-time boss at KOST, Jhani
Kaye, hired Mike for weekends and filling in on mornings and other
relief at 94.7 FM The WAVE. Mike also is a part-time actor and
serves as a Board Member and as the 2nd Vice President of the

Larry Scott lives in Vancouver, Washington. He is a co-founder
and retired Webmaster of this site. Larry still likes the 70s
sounds: Tractor, Neu, Funkadelic, Strawbs, any CTI jazz, Pink
Floyd, Canned Heat (especially the album with Little Richard and the
one where they backed-up The Ventures), Uriah Heep, early Queen, Thijs van Leer,
Harvey Mandel, Jan Akkerman, Jukka Tolonen, Golden Earring and anything composed by
Georg Friedrich Handel. These sounds get thundered around the
neighborhood with a Thorens TD 165 turntable with Empire cartridge
into a Kenwood KR- 9400 receiver through a Kenwood GE-56 graphic
equalizer and out a pair of too-large Pioneer speakers (the model
number tag fell off).
