103.5 WKTU

Broadway Bill Lee, 103.5 WKTU Lake Success (New York) | February 1, 2000

One of our all-time favorites, Broadway Bill Lee (Bill Lenke) sounds a bit more serious here but still rhyme drops plenty in this scoped 8 1/2 minutes of Rhythmic excitement! KTU has always been a classy outfit, and the station shines here. No obnoxious imaging, jingles that fit the music perfectly and a really great music mix combined with an airstaff that was exactly what you’d expect in America’s Number One radio market. It’s only a month into the new millenium, and judging by the way KTU sounds, they are likely still using CD carts or even vynl for some of the dance cuts. Someone knows. The sound is refreshingly CLEAN, another indication that the music isn’t a compressed digital file somewhere. Hard drives were still pretty small in 2000, so… well what do ...

Broadway Bill Lee, 103.5 WKTU New York | May 30, 1997

New Contributor Cecelia Taylor-Hunt sent in over 90 minutes of Bill Lee on “The Beat of New York”. Before you say, ‘this isn’t top 40’, you really must listen. 103-5 KTU is doing some killer promotions around this time, and remember, this was 1997, and all the consolidation which ruined even the big stations hadn’t happened yet! KTU has jingles, killer imaging and even better jocks! Listen as Bill Lee puts his wife on the phone, reminding him (and the listeners) that Al Bandiero is getting married! And incidently, Mr. Bandiero is on KTU after Broadway Bill Lee – and don’t we wish we had the audio for THAT! Read the history behind 103.5 FM today’s WKTU Here. Listen to Bill Lee on 610 KFRC San Francisco from 1981 Here. Listen to Bill Lee ...

Vic Latino & the Top 8 at 8, WKTU 103-5 “The Beat of New York” | June 25, 2002

This starts out in a commercial break, but after that it’s ALL Vic Latino! At the time of this aircheck, WKTU’s Dance incarnation at 103.5 FM was one of the top stations in New York City, a far cry from several years earlier, when 103.5 was home to the Country version of WYNY – a great sounding, but struggling radio station. Not to confuse out of town visitors, THIS WKTU is not the same radio station as the one which beat WABC for the first time in 1979, that was 92.3 WKTU, a Disco station which went mainstream CHR in the 80s before flipping to Alternative Rock as WXRK, and subsequently becoming the home for Howard Stern’s morning show. With 103.5 KTU, the call letters came full circle, as the station was intended to resurrect the legacy of the original Disco statio...
