QuickChexx: Rick Hunter, 106.7 WLTW New York | 1999
Contributor Rick Hunter (WODS/WCBS-FM/WYNY)is featured in this QuickCheck which doubles, apparently, as one of his demos. We’re guessing here as to the exact year, but judging from the music – from memory, mind you, thinking 1999, based upon Brian McKnight’s version of “Back at One” (and don’t get me started, arguing that Mark Wills’ version was better…)
Rick has the *perfect* voice and presentation for a Soft AC station. And SOFT it was when this was recorded. 106.7 Lite-FM, as the station goes by in NYC, is consistently one of the top stations in the city. It has a heritage all its own, going back to the station’s launch in 1984, from what was a Country station, WKHK, which went up against AM POWERHOUSE 1050 WHN! And lost. Lite-FM gets little representation in this aircheck, however, as this is just about all Rick Hunter, scoped down in typical demo form, so tightly that there’s just a hint of ‘other’ elements from the station. Yet, you WILL enjoy this. So listen, you.
