99.5 Minneapolis WLOL

In our first WLOL glimpse of this CHR WARS presentation, we heard Bill Lee from 1985. Now, fast forward a couple of years to about 1988. WLOL is now 99 POINT 5, instead of 99 and a half. Whoopee, I know that makes so little sense, but what does in the world of radio? Never mind that if someone was on the ball today, WLOL, the LOL part being a cyber-acronym for LAUGH OUT LOUD, or LOTS OF LAUGHS…well, you get the picture.

This is Kelly Foxx on WLOL – maybe not a ton of laughs but certainly lots of fun and great music from the decade of greed and excess (talk about mis-labelled…. nobody had a crystal ball to see the greed of the 2000s, now, did they?), as we continue our trip back to the 1980s and two very LARGE CHR stations, very much at war!
