Jim Cutler, 96.5 WTIC-FM Hartford | 1982 – Video Aircheck

Courtesy of and directly from the Contributor Ellis B. Feaster YouTube Aircheck Channel, here’s an ‘oldie but goodie’ from the days when 96 TIC-FM was a CHR station. Or, perhaps more precisely, It was a subdued Top 40 station morphing into an Adult Contemporary outlet.

… Seven songs in a row, can you believe it?!…

WTIC-FM was actually a great sounding station at this point, but it was getting very stiff competition from 102.9 WDRC “FM 103”, which in 1982-84 was a personality-oriented Top 40 station as well.

Now, a message from our founder…
Do you think you could spare a moment? Airchexx.com survives, literally, on the donations from people just like you. The ads you see take about 3 months to build up enough revenue just to get a small check. If you enjoy these archives, which so many out there do indeed rely upon, could you spare a little bit of cash? All of it goes to the hosting fees and miscellaneous costs of running this website. Thank you in advance.

This is a super-clean sounding recording. Our Contributor did a great job of digitizing this from the source tape. You get the added assurance that being YouTube, you’ll actually be able to stream this from just about anywhere, even your phone or tablet! Our custom audio player works that way as well, but it’s not as ‘visual’ if you know what I mean.

We’ll be featuring lots more from Ellis B. Feaster’s YouTube Channel in the future, so come back often!!
