I might as well contribute since I know a little about 4 of them and where they went. Doug Collins worked at KFXM off and on for years afterwards, and he was voice of Super Shops, a car shop that sold sporty auto items, and that had branches all over Southern California. His spots ran on all the LA stations. He segued into TV and was a fixture on public channel 24 in San Bernardino. Chris Roberts, in addition to his DJ job, was playing baseball for the minor league San Bernardino baseball team until he was injured. It was fortuitous timing because the team was looking to broadcast games on local TV. “Hey, you’re on the radio. Why don’t you broadcast our TV games for us”? That transition eventually turned into a 23-year association as the voice of UCLA Bruins football and basketball, where he retired 5 years ago to much celebrations at a game where he was recognized for his service. Johnny Kaye is widely known in radio circles. He worked as a program director in El Paso before landing a job as PD of KRTH and of KTWV, The Wave, both in Los Angeles. Ed O’Brien left for KFRC in San Francisco. I grew up in the little Kansas town where his grandmother lived, in the same block as she.
