At the time the KULF studios were located in the Central National Bank building. The air studio was right next door.
This picture shows the production of a Public Affairs program called Overview for the Jaycees. The program aired on both KULF and sister station KYND. Phil also later produced Dan Lucas' evening talk show. He works in San Diego TV now.
Sam Putney, Dan Ammerman, Jim Young, Bill Leslie and Galen Grimes are some of the people from the KULF Newsroom at that time. Kay (no last name on-air) Henderson worked on the ground and Dave Hale worked in the air doing traffic reports. Jim Tate, Gary Ryder, Vashti Henderson, Joe Bauer, Roger St. John and Nick Rice were some of the other people he remembers working with there in that time frame. He and Bauer also did some things together in San Diego.
My thanks to Phil for sending this picture and his recollections along to share on the blog.

After a four and a half year hiatus, the station returns to it's humble beginnings in the 1960s as an on-campus, low power FM signal. The new station's launch is ironic given the University of Houston's announced plans for the transmitter and tower it purchased from Rice and turned into KUHA-FM.
The official calls are KBLT-LP but the station will be referred to as KTRU except in the legally mandated hourly ID.
