Check out this shot of KCAL at the US Festival! Thanks to KCAL rocker Sean Syfers for finding this picture and sharing it with us for Throwback Thursday. You Rock, Sean! Now, do you wanna really trip out? We recently got a message from a listener asking if we wanted an old banner of ours back. He said his uncle and some friends had had stolen it from the US Festival on a dare, and it has been moving around garages of the IE for 30 something years ever since. Sadly, the uncle is in failing health and wanted to clear his conscience before he passed away, so he told his nephew to return the banner. The nephew (who wanted to remain anonymous, but is a really good guy) dropped it off:
And here it is with 4orty and Daryl holding it. The old Rock Spectrum lives in the new studio!!!
It was 17 years ago, and the Angels had those ugly old Disney uniforms, but Jim Edmonds made the one of the most amazing catches ever!
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Six Flags announced yesterday that after 36 years they’re closing the legendary Collossus Roller Coaster at Magic Mountain in Valencia as of August. Yeah, there are newer and crazier roller coasters, but damn, I know a lot of us are gonna miss the old wooden monster! I was there in the summer of 1978 when it opened, and can’t count how many times I bounced around in those uncomfortable cars. Might need to hit the park one more time before it goes away. Here’s some front seat video to remind you of what its like…
We had a great time hangng out with everyone at the Redlands Chili Cook-Off and Car Show this past weekend at Sylvan Park in Redlands! The weather was perfect for plenty of cold beers and live rockin’ from The Yard Dogs, plus the KCAL Chili won 1st Place!
We’re already making plans to be there again next year, and we hope the Redlands Optomist Club raised a ton of cash to help kids in the Inland Empire. Thanks to all the KCAL Rockers that came out for the fun. You Rock!
For the second year in a row, Metallica hosted Metallica Night at AT&T Park in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. And once again this year we sent a lucky KCAL Rocker up to enjoy the fun and a great weekend in the City By The Bay. But if you didn’t win, the band is offering up a free download of their version of the National Anthem they performed before the game. Watch it on the video below, and then grab the MP3 here!
King of the Cage Jr. Welter Weight Champion Josh Aveles is all set to defend his tonight at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino at King of the Cage’s “Slugfest”. But before he steps into the cage tonight he stepped into the KCAL Studio with us…
If you missed it on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, you are not going to believe what happens towards the end of the video! More cowbell anyone?
