Jack “Da Whack” Tally, WHTZ Z100 New York | Summer, 1989

Recorded in the Summer of 1989, Jack Da Whack is caught live on Z100! This was sent in on cassette, the first cut from “East Coast Airchecks” #7 contributed by Robyn Watts.

Note the high energy level! Z100 was probably the hottest radio station in America by 1989, the station often copied but never quite duplicated. From the imaging to the jingles to the jocks, Z100 cooked!

  2. Summer 89 was the first time I visited New York and Z 100 was really hot by the time. Recorded miles of tapes during my stay, you could wrap them round the moon ;-)
