“Party Radio @ 103 point 9… We Don’t Suck!!”

At four minutes in length, scoped down from a 90-minute cassette, you get the impression that there’s not much to this Alternative/Rap hybrid station, but there’s more than meets the ear in this short representation of the former KPTY Phoenix. The station wasn’t around very long – 1997-2000, but it did make it’s mark on the Phoenix market. About a year after this aircheck, the station relaunched under the same call letters and slogan, but only this time marketed toward a much younger, teen audience, with a rhythmic lean. You can hear that relaunch HERE, courtesy of our sister site, the Format Change Archive.
