Its been quite a while since we posted a Z100 aircheck, but nothing has really changed. Z100 is still a hot CHR station, although today the jocks speak a bit less and the music… well, there’s no rock today but that’s the state of pop music in 2018.
This is Paul Cubby Bryant, who moved across the hallway to co-owned iHeartMedia 103.5 KTU some time ago. Back in ’99, Bryant sounded great on Z100, back when there was still a healthy mix of Pop, Hip Hop and Alt-Rock in the CHR format. Perhaps our younger audience will appreciate this wide variety just before the new millenium kicked in. 1999. Who woulda thought this would be considered old? On the other hand, back in the 70s when Oldies stations started appearing, they considered anything TEN years old as an oldie.
Here’s to our Millenials!
