“Broadway” Bill Lee, 97.1 WQHT ‘Hot 97’ New York | April 25, 1990

Currently on the legendary 101.1 WCBS-FM, Broadway Bill Lee (WTIC-FM, KFRC, WLOL) holds down the afternoon drive on Hot 97. Note the intensity of this aircheck! Not only that, but looking back, this doesn’t sound Urban, so much as a dance-oriented station. But after all, this was 1990 and Hip Hop would really come into its own as the 1990s took hold.

Another reason why Bill Lee is one of the best there’s ever been and he’s still relevant even today!

Here’s another great aircheck from East Coast Airchecks and Robyn Watts!

Heard on great radio stations like WGKX "Kix 106" and WMC-FM Memphis, online at HitOldies.com (and once upon a time at RadioMaxMusic.com), loosely contributed to some yearly countdowns at MusicRadio77.com, and most importantly, Webmaster of this great Radio Historical site, Airchexx.comLook for me on the Ham bands. Perhaps one day you'll have a QSO with K1FRC. Happy DX and Happy Listening!

    This is from April 25, 1990. The date is given in the first few minutes. Dont matter though… Bill Lee is timeless, one of the best ever to grace a CHR mic.
