Ellis B Feaster

Bruce Ellis, 93.7 WSTW Wilmington DE | 1986

In the middle of a twelve hit, twelve song super sweep!     Here is a scoped aircheck of Ellis B Feaster, using his air name “Bruce Ellis” in Wilmington, Delaware.   Feaster is known for his morning show in Orlando at Z88.3, and his show at WNVZ Z104 Norfolk VA.

Indeed!  Shortly after this aircheck was recorded, WGH-FM 97.3 flipped to Country as “Eagle 97”.  It remains Country to this d...
