Sue O’Neal, 98.7 WXLO 99X New York | October 30, 1979

Courtesy of longtime Contributor Tony Impieri, here’s a ‘new’ aircheck featuring Sue O’Neal. It’s in high quality Stereo! Why is that important? Considering the sound of today’s compressed and over processed FM stations, this is very refreshing. I noticed, and I’m betting you will too, that you can hear how good WXLO sounds here. Great separation, not over...

Composite: 98.7 WXLO 99X New York | September 1977 – Spring 1978

“99X – Rockin’ the Apple in Stereo!” Courtesy of Big Apple Airchecks, here’s a new Composite of New York’s legendary 99X! This spans the Fall 1977 – Spring 1978 time frame and includes some great personalities like Glen Morgan, The “Sainte” Show, Dick Sloan and others. This is another tightly scoped aircheck that came to us that way. Listen clo...

The Return of Beaver Clever, 98.7 WXLO “99X” New York | June 9, 1979

Listen now as Beaver Clever throws himself into a high energy Top 40 radio show. Frankly, its amazing that 99X didn’t beat crosstown, cross-band WABC at its own game right here in ’79, but that distinction was reserved for “Disco 92”. You’ll notice that 99X leans slightly in a Rock direction while playing the Disco hits at this point in time, probably in response to W...

Composite #2, 98.7 WXLO “99X” New York | January 4, 1979

Big Apple Airchecks presents: 55 minutes of a broadcast day on WXLO 99X! Part one posted a very long time ago and we’re just getting around to putting up the other orignal, which is in better shape remastered than the original. This begins with Rob Sisco and its a wonderful slice of how radio was done in 1979 – live, 24-7 with real people behind the microphones. Sure as heck better tha...

Bobby Rich with special guest Meat Loaf, 98.7 WXLO 99X New York | October 5, 1978

Bumper Morgan is the first voice you hear on this hour long scope, then Bobby Rich starts off this particular show, in his words, “broadcasting from a brand new studio that’s never been used before”. And with that, this hilarious show which probably unscoped ran about two hour kicks off with Meat Loaf the special guest DJ. You really must listen to this whole aircheck because the...

Beaver Cleaver, 98.7 WXLO New York | June 1, 1978

Courtesy of Big Apple Airchecks, here’s a fun aircheck of a night Beaver Cleaver (KFMB-FM, KTNQ) came to New York City, probably upon the insistence of someone at RKO General, and did the first of many appearances at 99X! We’re not sure how many times Cleaver was on WXLO, but we do have another aircheck of Cleaver here, a year later (watch for the link, still to come). Yes, it’s ...

Composite: 98.7 WXLO New York | 1978

Pure heaven is probably the only way to describe this nearly one-hour long scoped composite featuring the talents of Bobby Rich (Bobby’s B-100), who here is in for Al Bandiero, Sue O’Neal, Bobby Messina and more! Courtesy of Big Apple Airchecks, this was donated to our site nearly 10 years ago and finally is finding its way to airchexx! You will notice that this really just before the ...
