Pure, uncut, Hot Hits! This is what the Hot Hits Format sounded like when radio consultant Mike Joseph installed the format on 98 WCAU-FM in 1981.
Lots of energy, lots of the original TM Fusion jingles, and lots of quick jock banter into jingles, out of jingles, over jingles. A jingle is played after EVERY element, which adds to the energy. This aircheck is actually the OVERNIGHT show! I recorded this from Midnight to 1:30 am, on Thanksgiving 1981, & Billy Burke was the jock. There is even a newscast, loaded with production elements, on this aircheck.
The Hot Hits format was about 9 weeks old when I recorded this. Even notice the revel cranked very high. There was no mistaking the sound of WCAU-FM with any other station in Philly!
