The station was operated 19 hours a day, from 5 am to 12 mn, with the power of 25,000 watts from transmitter located at San Francisco del Monte, Quezon City.

The other radio personalities of KB 89.1 included Peter Rabbit (the current voice-over of ABS-CBN as he work for the Kapamilya Network), Bingo Lacson, Long Tall Howard (Howard Medina) and Vic Salta. Salta covered the 9 pm-12 mn shift and became popular among the teens back in the 80's as he would showcase "popularity battles" among the top bands back then - more notably Duran Duran vs. Spandau Ballet rivaly played on air practically nightly.

It was in July 1978 that the station was transferred to its studios at the new home in Broadcast City in Capitol Hills, Diliman, Quezon City from the former studios in P. Guevarra Street, San Juan, Metro Manila.
