    The website is back up. There's just a holding slide there right now, but if you click (or tap on an iPad) the little arrow in a circle in the top left corner of the screen, you'll play a new audio sweeper they installed there just today.

    Also, the KISN Everywhere Facebook page is now KISN Goodguy Raduo's official Facebook page, replacing the earlier one. It has 200 friends right now, and appears to be growing as the word starts to get around.

    They've also launched a YouTube page under the KISN Everywhere name, which includes footage from the original Goodguy Radio online launch in 2011, and KATU's story about the KISN-FM launch, which also includes footage of Dave Stone's original KISN-AM close down from the studio at the transmitter in 1976. The 2011 online kickoff is also available from a link on the website (at the bottom of the page). The Facebook page now has over 300 friends!

    The Facebook page also reposted a message from Paul Revere's widow Sydney which was posted originally on the Paul Revere & The Raiders Facebook page last night. It's worth reading.

    The Facebook page is set up as a personal page you have to "friend," not a business page. Kinda' creepy not knowing who you might be "friending."

    A personal page allows the owner to troll for friends. A business page does not.

    Hope they get it figure out...usually takes a few days....You have to follow YouTube (Google) rules if you want to play in their sandbox...

    The Original KISN was always about Gaming! There was a contest all the time!

    That has now been corrected, and the Goodguys YouTube page is back up and running. In addition, there are links available to the vid clips from links at the bottom of the Interbet page.

    The KISN Everywhere Facebook page also reports that they will soon be adding to the website a gallery consisting of every KISN Top 40 survey ever published, from number one in 1959 to the last one in 1976! That is quite a research effort, because these surveys have never been collected in order before! The Facebook page reproduced the inside of survey number one from '59, which features this caption running across the bottom of the page: "Portland has radio, TV, and KISN!"

    Perhaps you guys can clear something up for me. The video from KATU that appears of the Kisn Everywhere Youtube site talks about KKSN being on the 910 AM dial. I believe this story was done in 1988 which would be the time that KKSN-FM 97.1 went on the air. KKSN -AM continued for two years after Charlie FM took over 97.1. Was KKSN doing both AM and FM and when did the AM start?

    Another possible scenario is that KKSN-AM 910 started out in 1988(7) together with KKSN-FM then dropped the AM until it came back in 2005???
