FALLBROOK HIGH/REZ RADIO HIPPIE BUS HITS THE ROAD

May 23, 2019 (Fallbrook) - Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, an old school bus donated to North County FM station Rez Radio 91.3 by the Bonsall Unified School District is nearing completion of its custom paint job commissioned with students from the Art Department at Fallbrook High School.  As the school year draws to a close, an army of students led by graduating senior, Caiden Metts are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the 60’s hippie-themed work of art.  It’s quite a spectacle. 

The idea came about when Rez Radio changed its call letters early last year to the San Diego heritage call sign, KPRI – now standing for Kupa Pala Rez Indians.  That brought forward a number of people from the air staff of the original KPRI in San Diego when the station first tried free-form FM programming in 1967-68.  Much of that music is still a core element of Rez Radio’s programming.
