Lee Roberts, WTIC-FM “96 TICS” Hartford | 1978

96.5 Hartford WTIC-FM

Thanks to Steve McVie out on Cape Cod, one of my all-time favorite stations. Mike Josephs “Hot Hits” ™ formatted CHR WTIC-FM. There are a number of “Hot Hits” stations profiled here and at other web sites, but none quite capture the engergy and creativity of TIC-FM.

Prior to flipping to Top 40 in 1977, WTIC-FM was a Classical station – the FM sister station to one of America’s original 50kw AM stations WTIC 1080. When it flipped, TIC-FM was an immediate ratings winner.

Lee Roberts was heard on WAVZ and WKCI New Haven prior to moving to WTIC-FM.
