    This from All Access:

    ----------------------------------KINK Celebrates 45 Years With A-Z Promotion----------------------------------

    ALPHA BROADCASTING Triple A KINK/PORTLAND, OR is presenting selections from its extensive music library -- from A to Z -- starting MONDAY, JANUARY 7th, and will run for at least 10 days . And in celebration of its 45th year the station will highlight the year it began broadcasting: 1968.

    During the A to Z, when a listener hears a song from 1968, the fifth caller wins a KINK 45th anniversary commemorative T-shirt and is entered to win a trip to join BRANDI CARLILE on the "Rock the Boat" music cruise in FEBRUARY!

    Sadly, we just lost the former Vancouver (Canada) DX'er who, then a teenager, listened to KINK-FM back in 1968 from his parents' home on the South Slope of Vancouver. That's the only time I got to hear the station in those years: while visiting him. KINK came in loud and clear 24/7 on his parents' console stereo attached to a Channel 6 antenna on the roof.

    To those of us who listened for any length of time, KINK sounded better than either our own CKLG-FM in Vancouver or KOL-FM in Seattle.

    He left his DX behind and became an excellent school teacher. Unfortunately, he passed away a few months back.

    KINK will play some vinyl to celebrate their 45th year, as KGW reports:
