The KSFO collection consists of audiovisual media and ephemera from this San Francisco radio station’s years owned by Golden West Broadcasting, 1956-1983. KSFO was known for their news and sports coverage, as well as the voice talents of such personalities as Don Sherwood, Russ Hodges, Lon Simmons, and Al “Jazzbo” Collins. The majority of this collection involves station marketing, promotions, and fundraisers, although there are airchecks and other broadcast recordings. Production library material includes jingles, themes, music beds, promotional spots, edited programs, and advertising.
The KSFO Collection was donated to the Stanford Archive of Recorded Sound by KSFO in June, 1998.
