2015 Legendary Station Award

James Gabbert and Gary Gielow

KPEN 101.3 FM Atherton - San Francisco (1957-1968)

Join us this June as we celebrate the unique contributions of KPEN (101.3 FM) to the world of broadcasting.

It's a story of entrepreneurship, innovation and a passion for radio that begins with two Stanford students named James Gabbert and Gary Gielow, who started broadcasting on the fledgling FM band in 1957 from a crumbling 120-year-old adobe hut on the Peninsula, and grew it into the "Powerhouse In The Penthouse" — one of the nation's strongest and most popular stations.

It's another wonderful opportunity to break bread, enjoy a few laughs and spend an afternoon with your friends and colleagues from Bay Area radio and television at our next fun-filled Legends Lunch!

Don't miss out on attending the Legends Quarterly Luncheon...
