A less than memorable QuickCheck of the old “102.9 Star-FM” Classic Hits format is presented here, scoped down from a 90 minute cassette recording. The only historical significance that this radio station holds is the current WKIX call letters. WKIX was a legendary Top 40 station on 850 AM in the 60s & 70s.
On this QuickCheck, you’ll hear a lot of ‘Star-FM’ imaging and jingles but not one jock. In fact, while one can’t tell what daypart this was from, it sounds as if this station was set up to be jockless most of the day.
Anyone who remembers the short history of “Star-FM” in Raleigh is invited to comment below.
