Firefighters Parade on Saturday morning will draw live radio broadcast

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

KOGO AM-600 and FM News and Talk 95.7 is planning a live broadcast from 9 a.m. to noon this Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Target store parking lot, 250 Broadway, El Cajon, as part of the Firefighters Parade for the East County Toy & Food Drive. Throughout the morning, the public is invited to donate money and toys and have the opportunity to be interviewed live on the air by radio personality Cliff Albert. The East County Toy & Food Drive, which benefits the Salvation Army, El Cajon Corps., is one of the oldest and largest toy and food drives in San Diego County. Food and toy distribution is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Dec. 19. For more information, visit
