Bill Lee, 98 WJBQ Portland, ME | February 24, 1983

97.9 FM Portland, WJBQ, Harry Nelson, Brian Phoenix, Steve Bleecker

So you think the smaller markets sounded quaint? Even in 1983, some of the hottest jocks in radio could be heard in tiny markets… Portland Maine is no exception. WJBQ was a flame-throwin’ Top 40 outlet for many years, and the talent that walked through those hallowed portals, well, you can imagine, given the talent of Bill Lenke (Lee).

After a stint in Hartford at WTIC-FM and then San Francisco at KFRC, PD Harry Nelson brought the master rhymer up to Portland to liven up an already electric airstaff. And listen to the results! This is incredibly HIGH-ENERGY CHR, like you’d expect from Bill Lee!
