Jack Daniel, 99.7 WJZR (Z100) Kannapolis NC | December, 1984

For those who don’t know of Kannapolis, its a suburb of Charlotte, NC. That’s the official C.O.L. (City of License) of the former WJZR, known at the time of this recording as Z100, “The Carolina’s FIRST Hit Music Radio Station”. Feel free to discuss why they picked that slogan. Z100 has been gone for so long, we can’t even find an old logo for them! And while it’s tempting to put up the logo for the current station, Classic Rocker WRFX 99.7 “The Fox”, wisdom says just skip it… this time.

The jingle package appears to be different than that which was in use at the then-brand-new Z100 New York, but not much. And you won’t hear that many. Jack Daniel starts this off at the Top of the Hour, with all the hits of 1984. Refreshing to hear them once again in context, and imagining we’re down in the Carolinas, getting ready to celebrate the holidays. Warm memories, indeed!

    Z100 had a good run in the Charlotte market competed with WBCY.

  2. His name is Jack DANIEL, not “Daniels”. If you need the Z-100 logo, I have the master slicks and all the jingles from JAM and TM.
