QuickChexx: Uncle Johnny on WZOU & Doug Alling on WHTT Boston | 1985

This is mostly some scoped Z-94 WZOU, but with one WHTT (Boston) break at the end. Incidently, both call letters are gone from the Boston market. At last report, WZOU was in use in NH on some AM station, and WHTT is in use in Buffalo on an Oldies station.

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 airc...

Call Letter Change: WEEI-FM Becomes “HitRadio 103” WHTT Boston | March 9, 1983

New Contributor Stuart Gitlow comments: The original recording suffered from several issues: my reception of 103 wasn’t great, the gain was turned up a bit too much (I was just getting used to using dbx), and the tape is 22 years old. All in all though, it’s not too bad. Since posting, we’ve had numerous corrections and additions which merit posting here. One very interesting description was found in the Archives at the Boston Radio Interest Group. Emailed courtesy of Paul Connors: CBS had to sell WEEI-AM 590 in Boston to meet FCC ownership regulations (in 1983, it was still 7-7-7 in a market) so that it could make room for the purchase of Metromedia’s KRLD AM 1080 in Dallas. ‘EEI was the weakst signal (only 5k watts) in CBS group’s portfolio while KRLD ...
