KMET was a Los Angeles radio station originally owned by Metromedia that first took to the air in June 1968 at 94.7 MHz. The station, nicknamed “The Mighty Met,” was one of the pioneering stations of the album oriented rock format.
To its fans throughout the 1970s and mid-1980s, KMET’s progressive rock radio format was what you listened to in Los Angeles if you were to be considered “cool.” Evenings were given over to Jim Ladd, whose laid-back philosophical ruminations usually led into a song – often Pink Floyd, The Doors or Led Zeppelin – that underscored his point.
KMET signed off on February 14, 1987 to be replaced with New Age KTWV “The Wave,” much to the consternation of its fans, many of whom called it “the Valentine’s Day Massacre”.
