Dallas Composite | November, 1992

Here’s a short composite of the Dallas/Ft. Worth market in the Fall of 1992. Contributor Marc Viquez writes:

This was the first time visiting Dallas, Texas; I was in town for a week for my mother’s teacher’s convention. I found that the city had some great CHR radio stations: Y95 and 97.1 KEGL. They also had 100.3 Jamz, whiched seemed to be leaning towards CHR/Rythmic. However, there was plenty of good music being played on these three stations and, even back as a teenager, I was able to tell that both Y95 and KEGL were in a state of war with one another. A lot of the sweepers and bumpers were typical of the early 1990s and within a few years-when many CHR stations ceased operations or flipped formats to either Hot AC or Alternative-they were almost nonexistent. In fact, less than two years later when I returned to Dallas, KEGL was playing rock music and Y95-I believe-was playing lite music. However, here is a sample of one my earliest airchexx collection and one of my favorites. For those of us who used to listen to the FM dial after school around this time, I hope it conjures up a plethora of memories.
