105.9-The Legend is excited to announce that we’ve received overwhelming support from our listeners and advertisers!
Yesterday, we announced that the Wrestling Team from Reedsport needed our help! We found out that eight of the Reedsport Wrestlers were set to compete in the National Finals in Fargo next month! Huge! But, there was a problem, they were still about $6,000 short of the funds needed to cover the costs!
First of all, Herbal Choices started off by donating a generous $1,000! Then, we received a couple of $100 contributions from Driffs on the Bay and Bay Area Mailing!
First thing this morning, we received a call from a Business in town for a $5000 anonymous donation! That whittled it down to just $650! Then Herbal Choices called us back and donated the last $650!
These Wrestlers are going to NATIONALS! Thanks to YOU – we’ve reached our $7000 goal in just a day and a half! Thanks for hearing our plea!
105.9-The Legend thanks you so much for your support!
The High School Wrestling Team from Reedsport High School has qualified EIGHT of their wrestlers to compete in the National Finals in Fargo next month! They’re still about $6,000 short of the funds needed to cover the costs! These kids have pulled off a feat that is getting National attention and THE LEGEND would love to help ’em!
We’re asking businesses and individuals to help with a donation of ANY AMOUNT toward that $6,000 remaining goal.
Thanks to Herbal Choices for their $1,000 donation!!! Along with Griffs by the Bay in Winchester Bay for their $100 contribution and to Bay Area Mailing for their $100 contribution. It’s this kind of support that encourages young people to excel and these kids are doing just that!

On behalf of Roger W. Morgan, Bob Malik, Shotgun Tom Kelly, and Desiree…THANK YOU! We recognize that you have LOTS of choices when it comes to Bay Area radio stations. And the recently completed audience survey completed by BASEAudience surveys, indicates that 34.7% of the total Bay Area radio audience is tuned to 105.9-THE LEGEND. The best way we can thank you adequately is to continue to limit our commercials to no more than 3 minutes per break, and to continue to play only the biggest legendary hits of all time.
It’s something we have suspected for a LONG time but now, it’s OFFICIAL! A recent listener survey on the Southern Oregon Coast for Coos Bay/North Bend confirms that 105.9-THE LEGEND leads the radio pack with a whopping 34.7% of the overall listening audience. (BASEAUDIENCE.com Jan./Feb. 2019). Thanks to our audience of adult listeners who dominate radio listening on the Southern Oregon Coast.

It reminded me of one of my best radio pals of all time, WOLFMAN JACK! Just days before his untimely death in July of 1995, WOLFMAN JACK and I MC’d a concert with the Four Tops, The Temptations, Bobby Vee and the Shirelles in Omaha, Nebraska. We shared good memories and stories that only old radio guys can share and enjoy. When I heard The Guess Who remember Wolfman with hit, “Clap For The Wolfman” this “Morgan”, I took a little time to reflect on one of the nicest people I’ve ever known. Roger W. Morgan

Meantime, we hope you’re among those who’ll be with ROGER W. MORGAN, BOB MALIK, SHOTGUN TOM KELLY and DESIREE for the JIM BELUSHI event with JOHNNY WHEELS AND THE SWAMP DONKEYS on March 15th.
This “Morgan”, a fan called THE LEGEND asking whose voice is heard whispering, “John” on John Lennon’s “#9 Dream”. We went to Roger W. Morgan who spent some serious time with John and the Beatles in 1969, and learned that the sultry voice is that of May Fung Yee Pang, best known as a one-time girlfriend of John Lennon. She had previously worked for Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono as a personal assistant and production coordinator. Mystery solved! Next mystery? Who will be first to make a dedication on Desiree’s new show, THE LEGENDARY LOVE LINE WITH DESIREE, weeknights between 7 and midnight on 105.9-THE LEGEND?
Bobby Rydell is an American entertainment legend!
Bobby will be with Roger W. Morgan on our “Morgan” show this Wednesday at 8am!
Part of the Philadelphia music scene which also spawned Frankie Avalon and Fabian, Rydell was undoubtedly the most talented of the teen idols. After a number of song hits, including “Wild One” and “Volare”, he starred in Bye Bye Birdie (1963)
“Rydell High School” in the movie musical, Grease (1978), is named in his honor. Honored by the City of Philadelphia when the 2400 block of South 11th St. was named Bobby Rydell Boulevard. The event was celebrated with a parade, a string band and Bobby arriving in a 1950 pink Cadillac. The mayor attended along with thousands of people. A huge block party followed dedication ceremonies.

Roger W. Morgan’s “circle of friends” often features genuine legends of rock. Norman Greenbaum is a perfect example. A giant THANK YOU to the man who gave us one of rock’s most memorable songs, for dropping into Roger’s program this morning to share the story of how “SPIRIT IN THE SKY” became a “PRIME PLAY” in the SUPER BOWL!
We love what we do here at THE LEGEND. This “Morgan”, when a listener called and wanted to hear “Expressway To Your Heart” by the Soul Survivors, Roger took it one step beyond what the caller had hoped for. He FOUND a surviving member of the legendary band and Kenny Jerimiah will join Roger live by phone this “Morgan”. We’ll catch up with one of rock’s true legendary groups!
Our own Roger W. Morgan presenting Front Street Provisioners in Coos Bay with our Certificate of Appreciation for their bold and exciting addition to our community and to helping to build a new wave of pride and confidence in the Bay Area.

There is a survey being conducted in the Coos Bay/North Bend area to determine who is listening to radio, and which stations are the most popular with the people of this area.

When we came into the studio this ‘Morgan’, we discovered that our Holiday Crew had started the decorating process for Christmas with a lone Christmas Tree.

But, we’re definitely ready for Thanksgiving with LOTS of turkeys to give away from THE LEGEND and our friends at McKAY’S SUPERMARKETS. Just listen for the Turkey “gobble” and be ready to call us at (541) 808-9399. 5th caller each time is a winner. One Turkey per family…and winning is EASY!

An interview that was scheduled for 8am this morning didn’t happen. We apologize and want you to know that we will always strive to bring you the genuine legends when we present recording artists on our programs. The call with David Victor was requested by his agent in advance of a planned appearance here in Coos Bay. When David didn’t call at the pre-arranged time, we simply moved on. We later learned that David wasn’t the original lead singer of BOSTON, but joined the group well into their legendary career. He was featured in their personal appearances but not on their recordings. Our sincere apology.
Former Boston lead singer and guitarist, David Victor, joins Roger W. Morgan at 8am Tuesday “Morgan” to talk about one of the greatest American rock bands in history, and his upcoming appearance at Mill Casino on November 10th.
We discovered recently that Scott Partney Construction is all about a lot more than just major construction projects here in the Bay Area of the Southern Oregon Coast.

OK…a shameless appeal! Roger W. Morgan was on his way to the studio this “Morgan” at 5:30 AM. He stopped, as he does every morning, at Dutch Brothers Coffee on 7th Street in Coos Bay. Realizing that the Remote Broadcast Studio Van he took to work today, was too tall to fit under the awning at Dutch Bros, Roger parked the van in the parking lot at McKay’s Market…walked over to the window and ordered his coffee. Returning to the van, he discovered that the van door had locked behind him. SO…there sits the Remote Studio, in the parking lot – motor running-lights on! Roger’s on the air now, but the van purrs happily in the Dutch Bros. 7th street parking area. Relying on the power of radio, Roger seeks a solution. The obvious solution would be to call a locksmith…whose phone at 6am doesn’t ring the standard way…it goes, “Cha Ching”!
Congratulations to the entire staff and management of Umpqua Bank in North Bend for winning our tribute to outstanding businesses on the Southern Oregon Coast.

Tomorrow morning at about 9am, Bill Cunningham of THE BOXTOPS, drops in to visit with Roger W. Morgan When most of us think early rock ’n’ roll influencers and the city of Memphis, one artist immediately comes to mind: Elvis. But in 1967, just as The King was about to relaunch his live-performance career following a seven-year stint making movies and recording soundtracks in Hollywood another Memphis act began making some significant noise. Combining elements of soul and pop, The Box Tops hit it big virtually overnight, thanks to “The Letter,” a snappy tune that clocked in under two minutes and swiftly reached the top of the charts. Capitalizing on their immediate success, The Box Tops would record and release three albums over nine months from late 1967 to mid-1968, producing additional hits such as “Cry Like a Baby” and “Soul Deep.” Alas, as Elvis’ career skyrocketed, success proved to be fleeting for The Box Tops, who disbanded in early 1970. They didn’t reunited in until 1996, when they resumed touring regularly until lead vocalist Alex Chilton’s unexpected death in 2010. Five years passed before founding members Gary Talley and Bill Cunningham—answering the pleas of fans— joined forces to take The Box Tops back out on the road.
