Bobby D., WRFY Y102 Reading (PA) | August 29, 1998

Description by Steve West Here’s one of those ‘checks we don’t really know much about, other than it’s from Reading, Pennsylvania. The signal probably makes it into Philadelphia, although probably very weak. Here’s Bobby D., playing the (mostly) Rock hits on a CHR station that leans Alternative/Modern Rock, but with a Top 40 approach. No jingles, but some pretty good, and simple imaging. Scoped, but commercials included for historical context.
