The Top 5 At 10 – A Sample of WSSX Charleston, SC | July 28, 1998

I wish I could tell you who the jock is on this aircheck, but in the 45 minutes of the original recording, he never says his name once. No jock imaging is heard… nothing! But its obvious from this 6-plus minute scope […]

Here’s a rare aircheck of Standards WOKE Charleston SC. I remember hearing the station when I was stationed there in the early 90s during my Naval service, and remember this sounding like a relic from my grandfather’s era! Not much I can […]

Charleston, SC is an under-rated market. I say that knowing that there are a lot of Large and Medium sized markets that did and still do have plenty of talent gracing the airwaves. This time, we have a pretty long late afternoon/evening […]

Classic Hits 102.5 WXLY Charleston SC | June 1988

102.5 FM in Charleston SC never seemed to ever stay with a format for very long. In 1993, your webmaster went to work, ever so briefly, for WEZL. One of the jocks that I was fortunate enough to make friends with, Rhett […]

A Sample of WWHT AM/FM Charleston – “Hot 94” | June, 1988

Here’s another aircheck where the jock never says her name. Running just over 5 minutes scoped, that would come out to about twenty minutes air time, the music isn’t genuine ‘urban’ format (unless you think Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” is Urban), although […]
