The Best of The KQ Morning Show

Since 1986, The KQ Morning Show hosted by Tom Barnard has been one of the most popular and longest-running radio morning shows in the country. Any given show can contain a compelling interview, a side-splitting segment leaving us gasping for air, and audio soundbytes that our co-workers still quote after all these years. (“Yo mammy!”, “I have to poop”, “a pair of choppers.”)

Throughout the years countless skits and original songs have been written, a “dumbass disc jockey” (The Chucker) was created in order to knock celebrities down a peg, and the jokes pretty much wrote themselves when a professional wrestler became the governor of Minnesota.

"Best of" Compilation Albums

Between 1990 – 2002, the KQ Morning Show released an annual “Best of” compilation album which comprised of the best original bits, songs and skits written and played on the show during its respective year. Use the navigation arrows to explore and listen to featured “Best of” tracks from each of the 12 compilation albums.
