Chicago CHR Wars – WBBM-FM (B-96) vs. WYTZ (Z-95) | March, 1991
From the Robyn Watts Collection, (I’m sure this time LOL), it’s back to Chicago where the on air WAR between Z-95 and B-96 was as heated as anyone’s ever heard.
Over on the ‘Killer B’, morning guys Eddie and JoBo are having a BALL! It’s ‘Confessions Wednesday’ and you’ll hear one caller who says she’s in the mob and almost got caught (real or made up? You decide). There’s a GREAT contest where B-96 gives away a CD player worth $300 bucks – listen to what they made this poor woman go through to win it! Talk about great contesting!
Later, in the Z-95 portion of this aircheck, you’ll hear TONS of produced bits making fun of B-96, to the point of overkill. True to their claims, according to what we hear on this ‘check, Z-95 really IS much more music in the morning with very little of what you’d expect from a typical morning show. It’s mostly dance music and hip-hop at this point, not the rock oriented format on the former WLS-FM, and still a couple of years before this station returned as WLS-FM TALK RADIO.
