92.3 New York WKTU

The date which accompanied this particular aircheck says February ’79. Obviously wrong, but this is another great aircheck from your webmaster’s favorite DJ (yea, the guy who inspired me to go into radio in the first place… to think of all the instability I could have avoided… thanks Al!). This is from 1985 – proven by a couple of commercials and the music (someone care to guess the date?). Notable, because later that year the CHR format would go away to make room for WXRK, 92-3 K-Rock.

You’ll hear two different Bandiero segments, recorded at different times. Commercials have been left in, and will someone tell us, what was “Go 92 KTU”?

Its not terribly long, at just over 9 minutes in length but it is in stereo for you with a good sound system. After listening to this, and realizing that in the 80s, NYC was a hot bed of Top 40 stations like WPLJ, Z-100 and KTU… Where did the fun go?

Thanks to Matt Seinberg for this excellent recording!

One thought on “Al Bandiero on WKTU (92-KTU) New York | Sometime 1985”
  1. Lots of President’s Day commercials, and I think Al says “Friday” at some point (it’s hard to hear right then), so my guess for a date is February 15, 1985.
