95.1 WSSX

The Top 5 At 10 – A Sample of WSSX Charleston, SC | July 28, 1998

I wish I could tell you who the jock is on this aircheck, but in the 45 minutes of the original recording, he never says his name once. No jock imaging is heard… nothing!

That 80s CHR war was not so much won by 95SX due to ratings, but thanks to divine intervention in the form of Hurricane Hugo, which devastated much of the Lowcountry in 1989. Q-107 took six months or longer to get back on the air, and when it did, it was for about a month before going bankrupt and the station purchased by a group which included Charlie ‘Bird...
