Seattle broadcast icon Ichabod Caine will return to northwest radio on the Skotdal Family’s Classic Country 1520 KXA Everett, WA on 10/31. Here are the details from a press release issued by the station: Ichabod Caine reignites the country music scene Halloween with his new program as afternoon host of Classic Country 1520, KXA. Ichabod “Caine,” not to be confused with Headless Horseman Ichabod “Crane,” will ride into AM radios throughout the northern Puget Sound region weekdays from 3-7 pm to feature the music he showcased for 23 years on Seattle radio: Cash, Hank, Willie, and Waylon. Caine’s radio achievements in Bellingham, Spokane, Tacoma, and Seattle propelled him to earn the title of Billboard Magazine’s “Radio Personality of the Year” three times and serve as host of KING-TV’s (NBC) Evening Magazine. After a four-year hiatus from commercial radio, Ichabod’s back to raise a little…Caine!”
“Legendary live, local talent like Ichabod is what separates over-the-air Radio from streams of songs mixed by computers” states Chuck Maylin, executive director of the Seattle Area Radio Association. “I don’t know anyone else who’s been a fixture on local Radio longer than Ichabod.”
“Local Radio’s specialty rests in the host’s ability to connect one-on-one with listeners and for advertisers. You can entertain and bond with your listeners in a meaningful way, and have a great deal of fun while you’re doing it,” said Caine. “I’m excited to highlight everything local in the Northern Puget Sound region.”
Seattle veteran and KXA afternoon host “Stitch” Mitchell will move from afternoons to host KXA’s morning show on Halloween from 6:00 – 9:00 a.m..
