    Alan Parsons had been producing Pink Floyd’s albums including the iconic “Dark Side Of The Moon” Before becoming a straight-up group recording pop ditties, the original Alan Parsons “Project” had involved cutting edge multi-media events involving video, audio & visual art difficult to describe or define. Compared to the safe, bland, formulaic rock on KISW at the time, this would have been pretty edgy programming for then to air & would have fit better into KZAM’s eclectic format on 92.5
