Composite: Kansas City CHR Stations | May, 1989

Curator’s Comments: This was posted a LONG time ago. So long ago, it sat at the bottom of the list of posted airchecks… within the first 100 donated to the site back in the year 2002. Therefore, much of the ‘technical information’ isn’t quite available. Still. its a good composite showing off some of the best of Kansas City from 1989. Original Comments: (From 2002) This Kansas City offering brings us back to the tail end of the golden years of FM CHR. It was Top 40 radio’s second golden era (the first having been the AM Top 40 days that ended in the late 70s). A time of zany morning show teams, hot jingles and larger than life hits. Some of the personalities have moved on to bigger things on the internet and elsewhere. People like Joel Denver (All Access...

Ronnie Philips, KBEQ Kansas City | October 5, 2005

Go ahead, you double-takers!

The same high energy is present at Q104 as was there on January 15, 1985, when Dancin’ Danny Wright was captured on this very radio station playing a very different kind of music! But, no, Q104 is now a Country Station! The same rules seem to apply as in the old days: Have fun (or else)! This is a really good, but way too short scope of Ronnie Philips. Full length it was about 40 minutes, scoped down to just over six. But that’s how radio is today, we ...

QuickChexx: Mike Kennedy, 104.3 KBEQ Kansas City | 1992

“…on Q104, its the right music, right now!” Mike Kennedy starts his show on this little tiny scope of Q104. He has passes to the movie, “A League Of Their Own”, starring Tom Hanks. Was it really THAT long ago? This really sounds GOOD! And you’ll notice all the big hits being played from Boyz To Men, to U2. That probably means nothing to the Country listeners who have been with Q104 since adopting the Country format in 1993. This aircheck was recorded in the final year of it’s Top 40 incarnation, and so it really was the “End of the Road” for CHR KBEQ. Another, from Contributor Robyn Watts and California Aircheck!
