Flying Bryan & The McDonald’s Top 9 at 9, WOKI ‘I-100’ Oak Ridge (Knoxville) | August, 1992

Less than a year away from flipping to Country, Top 40 WOKI (100.3 Oak Ridge) was in its final CHR incarnation, after trying different slogans such as FM 100 and “Hits 100” before finally coming up with “I-100”. One would think that with the monster signal WOKI had that virtually ANY format would do well, but apparently not, as CHR would go away in 2003, then the Country format would also go in 1998. The whole frequency and transmitter would go shortly thereafter. Here’s an exciting slice of 90s history. Allow yourself to be taken back to an evening that perhaps, you’re heading out to dance for the evening. While you get ready to go to the club, you’ve got this station on and you’re getting all excited while you listen to the Top 9 at 9 count...

Derrick Anderson, 99 WNOX (990 AM) Knoxville | July, 1979

Listening to this certainly brings back memories – not of WNOX, but of the days of AM radio in the Summertime. This aircheck will either bring back the sound and smell of an approaching Summer storm (hence the lightning static crashes on the aircheck), or it’ll remind you why you decided to listen to FM. Derrick Anderson himself contributed this aircheck, for which we’re grateful. We’ve gotten many favorable comments about this since it posted in the Summer of ’02. Your webmaster learned, WNOX actually had a great signal along the southern Appalacians, Kentucky and even southern Ohio. Now, listen to it again as we restore WNOX to the Airchexx Archives!
