While the date is unknown, I’m gonna chance a guess here at sometime around 1990 or so. One of our listeners will know for sure.
Here’s Howard Hoffman. Known as a pretty wacky personality on the east coast (look for him here at airchexx.com from WPRO-FM, WPIX-FM & WABC), he’s a *bit* more subdued here at KMEL. Hoffman is himself but listeners will notice the latter day liner-card reader mentality showing up on this station. Most jocks it fits, but it does NOT sound like Howard Hoffman when he’s obviously reading verbatim. We know better. Hoffman is an incredible talent!
Overall, this is a good aircheck. The station sounds hot and Hoffman sure is having fun like usual. But 90s radio isn’t 70s radio, and it shows. Today, KMEL lives on as a Hip-Hop station.
