Flying Bryan & The McDonald’s Top 9 at 9, WOKI ‘I-100’ Oak Ridge (Knoxville) | August, 1992

Less than a year away from flipping to Country, Top 40 WOKI (100.3 Oak Ridge) was in its final CHR incarnation, after trying different slogans such as FM 100 and “Hits 100” before finally coming up with “I-100”. One would think that […]

Composite: 1020 KTNQ Los Angeles, “The New Ten-Q”

Listen to the collection of voices in this long composite! Narrated by Jimi Foxx, this includes the station’s 1976 launch, then continues on to profile the (then) current airstaff and their ratings performance. I’m guessing that this was produced in 1977, perhaps […]

Two formats and over a dozen years ago, the only Country music station in Los Angeles was KZLA. Bonneville still owned the station at that time, and 93.9 used a very Adult Contemporary approach to its Country music format. Listen and you’ll […]

WWMY Raleigh NC “102.9 Star-FM” | March 24, 2004

A less than memorable QuickCheck of the old “102.9 Star-FM” Classic Hits format is presented here, scoped down from a 90 minute cassette recording. The only historical significance that this radio station holds is the current WKIX call letters. WKIX was a […]

Cousin Bruce Morrow, 66 WNBC New York | September 5, 1975

Here’s a ‘world premier aircheck’ of Cousin Brucie, as recorded by contributor Keith Teicher live on 66 WNBC New York on 09/05/75. Sure, there are ‘checks of Bruce Morrow out there but most are quite worn down and muffled. This is clear, […]
