One of the great “Hot Hits” formatted CHR stations of the 80s was Mike Joseph’s creation in Baltimore. Today’s “Mix 106.5” got its start as WMAR-FM, an incredibly high-energy hit music station that did, indeed, play all the hits. Rock, Pop, R&B, Novelty… if it charted, they played it. A true Top 40 in every respect.
Heard in this five-minute scope are those wonderful first generation Hot Hits jingles, heard elsewhere at WFBL, WTIC-FM, WBBM-FM and WCAU-FM, KITS, along with a few others. Gary Franklin is cranking the hits in the “Hot Seat.” -Ellis
