Mark Cardnella, 96.9 WXTC Charleston | June, 1988

96.9 Charleston WXTC-FM WIWF

Here is a glimpse of 96.9 FM after it emerged from the long dark tunnel of Beautiful Music, which WXTC was from the early 70s after it changed call letters from the heritage WCSC. Hurricane Hugo would devastate the Lowcountry just a few months after this was recorded, but the station survived a few more years before going Smooth Jazz, then there were more changes, finally settling on the Country format it has today.

This is an excerpt from California Aircheck Tape #SM-3, donated to the airchexx archives by Robyn Watts. It features the Morning Show with Mark Cardnella, Janet Conklin with Traffic Reports and Mona Higgins with News Headlines. One of the big stories of the day: Marine Lt. Col Higgins is held captive in Lebanon. Remember, Ronald Reagan was still president during this time.

Runs just over five minutes, scoped.

Aircheck #1,317 since May 2, 2002!
