Boston FM Composite: 1983
Here’s a quarter hour worth listening to. Starting with the great Joe Martelle, on the old 98.5 WROR, this goes back and forth between WROR and 103.3 WEEI-FM. Just two years before this was recorded, WROR had just morphed into a soft, personality AC from its days of automated Oldies. The fun part of this is listening to how much WROR tried to sound like WABC – they have Jam jingles (WABC cuts!) and even call themselves MUSICRADIO WROR! It was, in my opinon, the best that WROR ever sounded during its short-lived venture into the world of CHR. The WROR portion includes a healthy dose of Mike Waite (WPRO-FM) doing HIS thing!
You’ll hear Dale Dorman on WXKS-FM… briefly.
Also included, 103.3 WEEI-FM, before the station changed call letters to WHTT… a VERY rare aircheck, since the time the station spent as a CHR WEEI-FM after moving out of the Soft Rock era was short before the new call letters came along.
Eric Jenning for Dick Gunton and Doug Alling are all heard on the WEEI-FM portion.
And THEN…. at around the 10 minute mark, a WHTT jingle. Talk about a jumbled mess! But its great to hear!
Now… enjoy the re-mastered Boston FM Composite, from a great time in Boston radio!
