Brian White, “99X”WXLO New York | Sometime 1974
Short enough to be a MICRO-Check, here’s something new Contributor Keith Teicher sent in a few weeks ago. This is Brian White on 99X, and we’re guessing at the year here – sounds like 1976, although there’s not really enough of this aircheck to really get a feel for the exact date, but one can get reasonably close. UPDATE: Date changed to 1974 thanks to some helpful listeners.
WXLO sure is cookin’ in this short composite. We’ve had some discussions about 99X and conclude that had this been on FM in 1983 instead of the mid 70s, there most certainly would never have been WHTZ Z-100 or a CHR WPLJ, and perhaps not even a 92.3 WKTU in it’s CHR form. 99X was light years ahead of its time. And lest we remind you, that was RKO Radio! We’ll NEVER let the FCC forget the mistake of forcing RKO out of the radio business, not after what they’ve allowed since 1996!
