Format Change: 96.1 flips from WKJI “K-JOY” Center Moriches, NY Simulcast to WJVC “My Country 96.1”

Its been a long-awaited event in this part of New York, where Country actually can be heard on FM, but as was announced on our sister site, radioinsight.com, JVC broadcasting launched a new Country format on 96.1 at the stroke of Midnight, January 19, 2011. The change had been slated for 12pm on January 18th, but bad weather forced the flip to be pushed back by 12 hours. The change was very low key. No announcements beforehand on-air. Simply the normal “John Tesh Radio Show” until just before Midnight, a 5 minute stop-set, a final ‘Legal ID’ as WKJI, then a full :30 seconds of silence. Country then began as a Legal ID of WJVC, and combined sweeper announcing one thousand songs in a row, commercial free. Here is the flip, including the last half hour or so of the K-J...

“Today’s 93.1 FM” WPAT Patterson NJ | Late 1980s

Contributor Ray Bozzanca sent this in some time ago. The source recording was obviously made for someone wanting the music only, as the tape was a 40 minute reverse-scope with most of the deejay talk and imaging removed… but what remains of this station’s identity is presented here. This is from a short period in the history of WPAT-FM, which at the time was still an AM/FM simulcast. WPAT had then recently gone soft AC out of a longtime Beautiful Music format, and was programming to New York City proper, from its signal in New Jersey. Later in the 90s, WPAT AM and FM would each get separate Spanish Formats and leave the English language audience permanently. Runs 3:30, Scoped.
