KYNO is where legendary Program Director Bill Drake and owner Gene Chenault began their incredible partnership. The year was 1963 — and within a decade, the “Drake-sound” was the most copied format on American radio. If you we’re a teenager in Central California in the 60′s, no doubt you’ll remember KYNO – the soundtrack of life for tens of thousands of Fresno teenagers. Today, you can still hear the voice of Bill Drake, those famous Johnny Mann jingles and ‘The Greatest Hits on Earth’ at 1430 AM, K-Y-N-O!
