“Party Radio @ 103 point 9… We Don’t Suck!!”

At four minutes in length, scoped down from a 90-minute cassette, you get the impression that there’s not much to this Alternative/Rap hybrid station, but there’s more than meets the ear in this short representation of the former KPTY Phoenix. The station wasn’t around very long – 1997-2000, but it did make it’s mark on the Phoenix market. About a year after this aircheck, the station relaunched under the same call letters and slogan, but only this time marketed toward a much younger, teen audience, with a rhythmic lean.

Each month, we ask for donations to support our online museum. It’s an ongoing request, because only a few ever donate, despite an audience in the thousands every day. Won’t you please help out and chip in? It goes to a worthy cause, helping to keep these classic radio recordings online and free to the user. Airchexx is a user-supported but free historical and educational website that also provides thousands of hours of listening enjoyment every day. You can make a voluntary, monthly contribution below, or look in the sidebar to the right for a link to make a one-time donation to help us defray costs. Thank you.
