105.7 WQSR

Barbara Simpson, Coast To Coast AM: 105.7 WXYV Catonsville (Baltimore) MD – Part 2 | May 18, 2003

Date of Recording: 05.18.2003 Station: 105.7 WXYV (WQSR)Catonsville (Baltimore), Maryland, USA Format: FM Talk Weekdays, Active Rock Weekends Station Slogan: “Live 105” Featured Air Personality: None (Jockless) Contributor: “Anonymous” Airchexx Entry: 1,502 Comments: In Part 1 of this 90 minute tape recording, we presented the music portion of “Live 105″‘s format. Best as we can guess, the Active/Grunge Alternative jockless music format seemed to be mostly filler for the high-profiled talk shows, as the Broadcast Day really begins with Howard Stern in the Morning – obviously prior to his moving to Sirius/XM, and one might argue that the entire format revolved around Stern.

Rock Sample: 105.7 WXYV Catonsville (Baltimore) MD – Part 1 | May 18, 2003

No personality, obnoxious imaging, no commercials and Grunge Alternative with no jock. You can get that on Pandora or SiriusXM (and we wonder why so many in radio today take a sour view on the industry’s future outlook) – but remember, this was 2003! Part 2 is quite a bit more interesting. In the next post: USA Radio News, then Coast to Coast...

Forgotten 45s – Alan Lee, 105.7 WQSR (Catonsville) Baltimore | January 31, 1993

Mr. Lee has a personalized jingle to open this show, which on this night, he says is a tradition on the night of the Super Bowl(TM)! Lots of 1950s Do-Wop songs, most of which, the host hopes you’ve long forgotten. I know I have! Back when this was recorded, WQSR was a powerhouse, with high ratings, a great morning show (Rouse and Company), and listeners all over Anne Arundel County. Who knows, your webmaster might have been listening that night, as I was working out of Ft. McHenry, ordering Naval Reservists around like they were mine to order! (Just kidding – ask former Capt. Livingstone, who was my fmr C.O.). WQSR was a station at the time, which played the 60s and 70s during the week, but all the specialty shows revolved around 1950s music. This show is typical of what you...
