97.5 WPST Trenton – A Retrospective. By Scott Lowe for Airchexx.com
Description by Scott Lowe.
In the mid 1970’s, 97.5 WPST in Trenton, NJ was one of the early Top 40 stations on FM. This composite was assembled by Scott Lowe, from various sources, highlighting many of the air talents that were heard over a twenty year period between 1978 – 1998.
Historically, WPST always had a Rock lean, usually ignoring disco and most of the rap music of the day. Through the years, WPST helped to break a lot of new acts like Boston, The Cars, Meatloaf, Tom Petty, Bon Jovi, Depeche Mode, The Cure and Nirvana.
WPST has always thrived despite the heavy competition from the neighboring New York and Philadelphia markets.
In 2005, WPST moved down the dial to 94.5 MHz and continues today with a Hot AC format.
