“KKKOB” — Eric Griego is Just the Latest

Recently, I had heard about one of our intrepid legislators referring to local radio station 770 KKOB-AM as “KKKOB.” Here’s the article in the Albuquerque Journal and the associated video clip.

Anyway, I ran a Google search on “KKKOB” NM, and learned that this gaffe from Eric the Red is merely the latest in a string of such comments, some of which go back years.

Here’s the earliest such that I found on the internet:

I could call it KKKOB-AM.

I could tell you to listen to a different radio station.

I could recommend that fair-minded business owners yank their ads off its schedule.

But I won’t.

I’m not a speck shy about saying this: I regularly turn my tuner to 770 on the AM dial – not because Larry Ahrens is the always-on-target observer of the political scene and not because Chris Jackson is such an uplifting fellow.

Rather, I listen because I enjoy hearing what “people on the street” are thinking. I like getting regular updates of local and national news. I need the traffic reports to help me cope with my . . .
