Morning Madness: Jonathan Brandmeier on 97.9 WLUP-FM Chicago | January 1984

97.9 Chicago, WLUP

And now, what finished off WLS’ personality rock format for good! By 1984, WLUP was THE king of rock stations in Chicago (and by 1986 the grand experiment to turn the rockers into talkers by moving the most popular personalities to AM 1000 WLUP-AM was ON!).

Brandmeier is heard here starting his morning show on ‘The Loop’. As was the trend in the mid-80s, this is lots more talk than rock, lots of phone calls, laughs and plenty of news & information to get the day started. Check out the notable news events of the day on this ‘check!
