Ron Chapman, 103.7 KVIL Dallas | March, 1988

Here’s part of the Ron Chapman Morning Show on KVIL. Not much in the way of music here, but some beautiful jingles, lots of traffic reports and some news of the time.

This is from before the station started calling itself “lite FM”.

I’m impressed by the quality of Chapman’s show, and of the music segments heard (remember, all music is scoped), the variety of songs played. Many of these aren’t heard on the air anywhere today, thanks to ultra-tight over-tested music playlists, so enjoy this slice of North Texas radio KVIL from late Winter, 1988.

    This aircheck is from when I was Program Director at KVIL and had the pleasure to work with Ron. This is also the year we pulled a 10.1 share (12+) in Arbitron and won the Marconi Award. Great Talent – Great Radio Station !

  2. Sounds like whatever device this was played back on could use quite a speed adjustment – the playback speed is significantly slower than it should be and as a result everyone’s voices are quite a bit lower than they were.
