KOKE FM DJ's Playlists

Legendary Austin Radio Station KOKE FM had a diverse set of dj's from 1975 until its demise in August 1977.  Kicking off the 6 AM to 10 slot was Marty Manning. Ole Blue Eyes, Joe Gracey followed from 10 to 2PM. The hot tomato, little Kandy Kicker slid into the control room chair for afternoon drive. Steve Jaxon,  continued revving the energy from 5 to 9. Skip Ducharme came roaring in at 9 PM and Dr. Dinger, The Good Doctor handled the turntables from midnight til 6AM.  Weekends saw two of the most eclectic dj's Austin had ever heard on the airwaves, Nick "The Perfesser", Spitzer and Joe Nick Patoski, writing then for Rolling Stone and Pickin Up the Tempo.  We're taking the time to lay out their favorite KOKE FM sets in these upcoming blogs.  Here's the Good Doctor's  1) Dylan If Dogs Run Free  2) John Lee Hooker Lights Out 3) Bob Marley Rebel Music 4) Little Feat  Rock & Roll Doctor 5) Memphis Minnie Me & My Chauffeur Blues 6) Bonnie Raitt's Sweet & Shiny Eyes  7) Sir Douglas Quintet She's About a Mover  8) Captain Beefheart Electricity  9) Alvin Crow Nyquil Blues 10) Peter Tosh Steppin Razor  11) Sonny Terry and Brownie Mc Gee Whoopin & Wailin.
