remake:KMPC mobile studio


This 1961 Ford P35 has been used since 2009 at northern Utah car show venues...playing the 'Best Sounds in Town' from a remake of Gene Autry's KMPC Mobile Studio, used (mostly) by Roger Carroll for remotes around L.A. This vehicle is a tribute to Roger and the others who made KMPC the professional radio station it was for news, sports and music. Thnx//jS

Playin' the Big Band sounds of the 40s for the 2011 Warbirds fly-in at in tune with the great B-17 and B-25 bombers of WWII and cars 'n trucks to boot! There's plenty to see and do at the Ogden Airport! And, with MOR of the Best Sounds in Town...and, the friendly folks at the Auger Inn, you're sure to have a great time in Ogden, Utah.. a pretty good best-kept secret. Aircraft tie-downs and car rental locations on the airport!

Capt Tom takes time out from his Airbus duties to join a classic B-25 warbird with his classic 1940 Chevy flatbed. Tom's one of the Utah CAF pilots of the unit's Beech 18 (C45) of the type once owned by KMPC owner, Gene Autry.

Ole 'Mater ('66 Ford F-100) poses with big Red and Big White) in cargo bin of the original truck...just a sample of the cars and planes on display on a warm summer day at KOGD...home of the Auger Inn, where everyone calls ya hun. It's also home of this year's Season of Sundays car and truck show, now in it's fourth year. See events schedule on this site...and, thanks for dropping by!

new SOTS Productions logo... thanks to artist Jerry Aldous for presenting this image with the history and them of KMPC's original Mobile Studio... and to Roger Carroll, Mike Botula and Michael Nash, others from KMPC staff for their support and encouragement... now in our eight year of 'broadcasting' northern Utah car shows from the remake of the KMPC710 Mobile Studio... now I've had more years 'on air' than some of the original talent :))

CLASSIC!! Showing it doesn't have to go fast, be low, and slow, and be blingy, but I think this should be loud, at least loud enough to play those oldies but goodies. What a great venue to carry the message of our good times to others. It's shape reminds me of the "MR FROSTY" ice cream truck that visited the neighborhood nightly with it's song drawing kids out from alleys and playgrounds and homes so we can all stand at the window and get our evening treat. That nickel, bought a lot of taste and fun. I'm sure this classic brings out the best in memories as well.

By the way I love the B-25, loved it in the movie "Forever young".
