Here’s one that is very typical of mid-80s CHR radio. The hits are classic, the jingles from JAM and the format right on target, in the middle of the format – not too hard, not too soft. Everything about this screams 1984!
I found it quite interesting while researching G105 that the station was owned by a newspaper (The Durham Morning Herald and Durham Sun) which never thought the station would be profitable – yet by 1984 was the cash cow of the company. WDCG began it’s Top 40 life in 1981, and it continues today as an Adult CHR station owned by Clear Channel Communications. Its current website can be viewed HERE.
