When listened to the show back in the 70s, audio was very good. Haven't listened to any of the shows on Wolfy's Vault.

Good lord, if you grew up in the '70's KBFH was probably your first exposure to live concerts on the radio. I remember staying up many a night taping the shows & then using those recordings to jumpstart my collection.

Original shows were sent to FM stations on LPs (later CD) for broadcast so the quality is great but I believe the shows on Wolfgangs Vault are MP3.

King Biscuits were sent to radio stations on albums. The commercials, and music were about 53 minutes in length. It gave the local DJ's 7 minutes of local advertising, and to flip the album. The quality is all board. Every major artist from 72 til 85 played King Biscuit. I have a friend who owns about 200 of those albums. Some are now being released by labels on CD.

Aw man, I forgot about that. I remember first hearing it about 20 years ago when I was about 13 and really getting into music (on WLAV). I have heard reruns of it as recent as about 3 years ago, but haven't heard anything since. Let me know if you find a station that replays them!

Wow. Brings back memories of washing dishes at my first job and then partying afterwards. Lots of good times. Hard to believe it's been almost 30 years.

From Wiki:

The program was broadcast weekly on Sunday nights from 1973 until 2007, although new programming ceased in 1993 and previous shows were repeated from that point. During its prime, the program was carried by more than 300 radio stations throughout the United States. The show’s name was derived from the influential blues radio show “King Biscuit Time”, which was sponsored by the King Biscuit Flour Co., and the hippie phrase “flower power”. The first show was broadcast on February 18, 1973 and featured Blood, Sweat & Tears, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Bruce Springsteen. The long-time host of the show until the mid ‘90s was Bill Minkin, whose velvet-smooth voice was the perfect blend of hipster enthusiasm and stoner casualness. [1]

Some of the biggest names in rock music were featured over the years—Aerosmith, Boston, Chicago, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, Genesis, Elton John, Journey, John Lennon, the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, James Taylor, U2 and the Who all appeared on the show.

The concerts were usually recorded with a mobile recording truck, then mixed and edited for broadcast on the show within a few weeks. In the 1970s, the show was sent to participating radio stations on reel-to-reel tape. In 1980 D.I.R. began using the LP format, producing the show on a three-sided, two record set. The first show on compact disc was a live retrospective of the Rolling Stones broadcast on September 27, 1987. By the year 2000, King Biscuit was using CD-R media to distribute the show. These tapes, records or compact discs were accompanied by a cue sheet which gave the disc jockey a written guideline of the content and length of each segment of the program.

In 1982, a three-alarm fire damaged the Manhattan office tower that housed D.I.R. Broadcasting. Supposedly, many of the King Biscuit Flower Hour recordings were lost in the fire. [2]

Although closely associated with classic rock in its recent incarnation, the King Biscuit Flower Hour dedicated much air time to new and emerging artists, including a healthy dose of new wave and modern rock artists in the late ’70s and early ‘80s. Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, the Ramones, Talking Heads, Elvis Costello, Devo, U2, Men At Work, Psychedelic Furs and the Stray Cats were all featured on the program early in their careers.

In 2006, the King Biscuit tape archives were acquired by Wolfgang's Vault which began streaming concerts online and has made some available for download.

King Biscuit Flower Hour Records

After founder Bob Meyrowitz sold his interest to new ownership, which became King Biscuit Entertainment Group, King Biscuit Flower Hour Records was formed in 1996 with the intention of releasing live albums from the archives. Although licensing issues prevented the release of the most popular artists featured on the program, dozens of recordings did see commercial release including those by America, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Pat Benatar, David Crosby, Deep Purple, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Humble Pie, Kansas, the Steve Miller Band and Robin Trower.

KBFH ran on WBCN in Bostson at midnight Sundays after "Dr. Demento" for years. Switched to WZLX classic rock after 'BCN went alternative and at some point in the early '90s it was replaced by the "Grateful Dead Hour."

One thing to remember when collecting KBFH shows is that you can't trust the dates. Most times the concerts get listed by air date not show date. I have 3 ABB shows on the original LPs and have never been quite sure about the actual show dates for 2 of them.

WOW....Thanks ODR. I wrote my post from memory(what's left). A college radio station in Oxford Ohio closed down a few yrs. ago. My friend had worked there for yrs. The owner gave him around 200 of the KBFH albums. I believe his were from 78 to 85.

For a while there was a site that was selling them for $ 4.00 to $ 8.00 a piece, Commercials were included. I bought 2 Ted Nugent shows for $ 4.00 each. Later on when I went back it was on hold as far as selling music. They may have been bootleggers.

I found a used copy of UFO Live KBFH a few months ago. It is not a boot. I believe it was a Rhino release. It is in my car, and I am too damn lazy today to go look...lol

I did a "live" radio broadcast from the living room of Jesse' Babyface' Thomas, guitar player for Elmore James and others. He was living in Shreveport, La at the time and he and I did a delta blues show broadcast live. The guys with the crew were very nice...the show was just the coolest. I played dobro and Jesse played guitar and sang.
he passed away some time back. A very nice man.

KBFH was the bomb. I believe that my brother has the reel to reel tapes that we made of many of those shows. I agree with Rydethewind, as the Foghat show was excellent. I remember a Santana show that was also awesome. I also distinctly remember the Robin Trower- Manfred Mann's Earth Band jam as well. Great radio show.

Aw man, I forgot about that. I remember first hearing it about 20 years ago when I was about 13 and really getting into music (on WLAV). I have heard reruns of it as recent as about 3 years ago, but haven't heard anything since. Let me know if you find a station that replays them!


WLAV was where I listened to KBFH as well, though I was a bit older than 13

That's ok Terri, did you have your LAV wings pin. Someone gave me one and I pinned it on my jean jacket along with the patches of my favorite bands ironed on. Ah the 80's...

Yes, I had the wings pin. I was also a "guest DJ" on LAV on my 25th birthday. They used to have a show on Sunday night where they'd let a listener come in the studio and do a show for an hour. That was fun! I think the DJ with me was Ogie Dryer. I had a cassette tape of the show, but it got eaten years ago.
