Anybody can play music, but it’s personality that really counts on the radio
Courtesy of Contributor Rob Grayson, this is an original copy of what seems like an industry pressing done in 1977. I can’t seem to find which one it was, but then, trying to find original Y100 logos from that era is difficult, as well.
This is a sample of a typical broadcast day, and it includes commentary from jocks, management (even owner Cecil Heftel!) and the Chief Engineer! What was the one thing emphasized here? Personality! In fact, it’s described here as “Predictable Unpredictability”. Nuff said.!
This is a 21 minute aircheck full of scoped airchecks. You really want to listen all the way to the end! It’s that good!
You’ll hear airchecks and commentary from the following:
Tanner in the Morning
Robert W. Walker
CE John Bailey
Earle the Pearl

One thought on “Y100 Composite – 100.7 WHYI Miami, 1977”
The South Florida radio market was so competitive in the early 1970’s. Stations were going the extra mile to get ratings and had to work at getting the ratings and be top notch in everything. That is more so in this market than in most other markets.
