WUSL US-1 FM 99 Philadelphia – Paul Troy – September 15, 1979
From the Paul Troy Collection
For the last few decades, WUSL Philadelphia, has been know for it’s Power 99 R&B & Hip Hop format, but there was a time, from 1976, until 1981, WUSL had an easy listening format, when the station was known as “US-1.”
US-1 was the major north-south route running through Philadelphia. That change happened when LIN Broadcasting bought the station from The Philadelphia Bulletin newspaper. Jim Nettleton programmed Soft Adult Contemporary format mixed with a number of pop standards which had crossed over in the 1960s & 1970s.
This air check comes from Paul Troy, who was also the jock on air in this aircheck. -Ellis
