98.7 FM Dallas KNUS Karl Ireland KLUV

97.1 Dallas KEGL EagleHere’s a short overview of the Dallas/Ft. Worth market in the Fall of 1992. It’s very interesting, because the Contributor recorded this tape while in-flight over the City of Dallas, TX.  Be sure to click the BIG BLUE BUTTON below to listen.

This was the first time visiting Dallas, Texas; I was in town for a week for my mother’s teacher’s convention. I found that the city had some great CHR radio stations: Y95 and 97.1 KEGL. They also had 100.3 Jamz, whiched seemed to be leaning towards CHR/Rythmic. However, there was plenty of good music being played on these three stations and, even back as a teenager, I was able to tell that both Y95 and KEGL were in a state of war with one another. A lot of the sweepers and bumpers were typical of the early 1990s and within a few years-when many CHR stations ceased operations or flipped formats to either Hot AC or Alternative-they were almost nonexistent. In fact, less than two years later when I returned to Dallas, KEGL was playing rock music and Y95-I believe-was playing lite music. However, here is a sample of one my earliest airchexx collection and one of my favorites. For those of us who used to listen to the FM dial after school around this time, I hope it conjures up a plethora of memories.

While only just under 8 minutes in length, this is a good cross-section of the Dallas radio market. You’ll want to listen to this all the way through.

    Remember doing CHR in San Francisco around this Time on X100…. CHR started going in many different directions …
