ACE FREHLEY VISITS 100.7 KFM-BFM FOR “ORIGINS” EVENT WITH FANS
SAN DIEGO, CA – Today (THURSDAY), Ace Frehley, original lead guitarist and founding member of the rock band KISS, joined listeners and staff of 100.7 KFM-BFM for an intimate “KFM-BFM Origins” event.
“KFM-BFM Origins” is a “songs and stories” concept, where artists tell their journey of musical discovery and share highlights of their career. Ace spent over an hour with KFM-BFM Program Director and afternoon DJ Garett Michaels recounting the early days of KISS, and details about his latest solo release “Origins Vol. 1.” He also plugged in his custom Les Paul guitar and played riffs from KISS songs “Cold Gin,” “Parasite” and “Rock and Roll All Night.”
“It was anabsolute honor to have Ace join us for our inaugural KFM-BFM Origins,” said Michaels. “As a long time fan, I’m still a bit stunned that I spent an afternoon hanging out with one of the all time guitar greats. I look forward to hosting many more KFM-BFM Origins for our listeners who are truly passionate fans of rock-n-roll. I freaking love this job!”
“KFM-BFM Origins,” is an on-going series, and Michaels encourages artists and labels who are interested in participating to contact him.
KFM-BFM 100.7 debuted its “variety rock” format on January 4th and has already become the top ranked rock station in San Diego.
