A lineup of hosts that included Steve Dahl & Garry Meyer, Jonathon Brandmeier and more made The Loop one of the most talked-about radio outlets in the country. Rick Kaempfer was there as a producer and DJ during the station’s zenith from the mid-80’s through the early 90’s, and joins us with stories from the era.
