Flying Bryan & The McDonald’s Top 9 at 9, WOKI ‘I-100’ Oak Ridge (Knoxville) | August, 1992
Less than a year away from flipping to Country, Top 40 WOKI (100.3 Oak Ridge) was in its final CHR incarnation, after trying different slogans such as FM 100 and “Hits 100” before finally coming up with “I-100”. One would think that with the monster signal WOKI had that virtually ANY format would do well, but apparently not, as CHR would go away in 2003, then the Country format would also go in 1998. The whole frequency and transmitter would go shortly thereafter.
Here’s an exciting slice of 90s history. Allow yourself to be taken back to an evening that perhaps, you’re heading out to dance for the evening. While you get ready to go to the club, you’ve got this station on and you’re getting all excited while you listen to the Top 9 at 9 countdown. It’s going to be a great night! Yes, life was good back then.
Its a fun window in time. Runs 13 minutes.
