It was a snowy Christmas Eve in 1984 and all was quiet and then the airwaves took flight and the songs had wings. Or something like that. But it was truly on Christmas Day when KZYR took the Vail Valley by storm.
BRAVE NEW RADIO -
The Zephyr, appeared on the scene in 1984 as in "Brave New World " at 103.1 FM as a class A, FM station, the 4th radio station in the valley. Studios were located in Avon upstairs in the Benchmark building.
Created by Jerry Davis and programmed by Fred Moore, we created a new format that we called Adult Album Rock and later was recognized by the record companies as Adult Album Alternative (Rock). Playing songs much deeper on the album, based on what we thought was the good stuff.
