Judge for yourself, but is this the same Mason Dixon we hear on KCBQ San Diego from 9/24/77? WMTX has changed frequencies since this was recorded back in 1993, but this does have at least one historical marker – Bill Clinton was president for only a few weeks, as he mentions in the beginning of this recording.
This is a somewhat typical AC station – not HOT AC, as this is a slower, gold based station where they let the songs completely fade out before talking. Still, its an upbeat morning show and you get to hear a few lines from the morning news team.

It most positively is the same Mason (Leroy)Dixon from KCBQ.
WMTX moving to 100.7 was a result of the divesting of Clear Channel’s 95.7 (which was short-spaced), as part of the purchase of Jacor in 1999, which owned 100.7.
No doubt it is the same Mason Dixon of the once and present Q104/WRBQ FM/AM Tampa. Incidently Mix 96 was his follow up in the Tampa Bay market after running up the white flag at the origional CHR Q104.7. He was the loser in the very visable radio war that was launched by the Power Pig.
Interesting top hour bed, does anyone know the title/production company? Also enjoyed hearing “Coming to America” and “Jesus, He Knows Me”. Two songs that get no respect in todays world of Mega-corporate ownership and snake consultants thinking only number 1 hits should be in a playlist.
Lived in Tampa bay and loved listening to Mason , bill
And the crew at mix 96!! Great radio
