First song played on KKFI, February 28, 1988 – “When the Ship Comes In!” by Bob Dylan
“. . . and the ship’s wise men
will remind you once again,
that the whole wide world is watching!
Oh the foes will rise,
with the sleep still in their eyes,
and they’ll jerk from their beds
and think they’re dreamin’,
But they’ll pinch themselves and squeal,
and know that it’s for real,
the hour when the ship comes in
And they’ll raise their hands
saying we’ll meet all your demands,
But we’ll shout from the bow,
‘your days are numbered’!
And like pharaoh’s tribe
they’ll be drownded in the tide,
and like Goliath,
they’ll be conquered!”
At the Mainmark Building on 1627 Main Street in Kansas City.
