    I remember Alan well. I used to call into Z95 pretending to be “Sam from Lebenon” ad he would put me on air. Had so much fun.

  2. Hackman

    This was the best station ever! I lived in Chicagoland in ’86-’87, and Z-95 was the WLS of the 80s.

      Thanks Hackman! I worked there until the end and still can’t understand why they pulled the plug on this station. There hasn’t been anything in town as good since…

      • Marzak

        There hasn’t been a decent top40 station in Chicago since Z95. Nic St. John, Mark Sebastian, and Kabel were all top-notch! Such a fun station that you wanted to be a part of… a non stop party.
