Delilah Debuts 'Lights Out' on KLSY 92.5 FM (1984)

Moment 36: Delilah Debuts 'Lights Out' on KLSY 92.5 FM

For over 30 years, Delilah Rene has been, in her own words, “the queen of sappy love songs.” She was 23 when she joined KLSY Seattle as an evening disc jockey in 1983. It was at KLSY that she had the idea for a show that would not only take requests from listeners but also allow those listeners to share their stories and discuss their troubles to a sympathetic ear. The two-hour "Lights Out" debuted in 1984 and quickly became the station’s most popular show.
