Composite: WTIC-FM “96-TICS” Hartford | July 22, 1978
Contributor Steve McVie says this is the one WTIC-FM Hot Hits ™ aircheck he’s most proud of. The audio quality is stunning in this exactly 30 minute long scope showing off consultant Mike Josephs genius as heard in Hartford, Connecticut.
Our contributor has a great website which highlights the Hot Hits ™ format and includes aircheck samples from each market it was heard in. Go Here.
We’re not sure where Gil Andrews and Bobby McGee went after TIC-FM, But Bill Lenke hit the big time after Hartford, going to every jock’s dream playground, 610 KFRC San Francisco. And of course, it was on to New York after that. Today, ‘Broadway’ Bill Lee is heard on 101.1 WCBS-FM.
As the 1980s wore on, The CHR mantle would rest on what became 95.7 WKSS “Kiss-FM”, and WTIC-FM would morph into Hot AC “96-5 TIC. It has remained in the Adult-Contemporary world ever since.
