Format Change in Chicago: WDHF Becomes WMET | December 1, 1976


Description by Contributor Keith Teicher:

Here’s the call letter change over from WDHF to WMET, Chicago on 12/1/1976. Note in the first stopset after the change the wrong jingle is played by FJ Bailes (WDHF instead of WMET). Promo voice (as I remember) is PD Gary Price.



Steve West is a 39 year veteran of broadcasting. His air work as a Jock and News Anchor includes six radio markets and over two-dozen radio stations. Steve currently works on-air for the Super Radio USA media group out of Minnesota. Steve is the founder of the Airchexx Media Group and manages and Airchexx Live - the official station of Airchexx.

this was during the change from am to fm radio in the early days but still sounds like Super CFL and Wls of that time period But Cfl was Gone on 3/15/76 because of stations like this playing the same music, but this station changed to the LOOP by 1979 playing hard rock

How True 95.5FM would go on to become “Smooth Jazz” WNUA 95.5FM and now as of 2010 it’s all Spanish. Viva Chicago thanks to Clear Channel Chicago has another useless spanish station.
