I knew very little about WNMB-FM other than that I had a cassette of a Hot AC station called B-94 from 2000. At the time this first posted on airchexx over ten years ago, Wikipedia said there was the Bob and Sheri show mornings in 2000, but mentions no other jocks. (*The record has been updated since.) Perhaps that explains this format of adult hit music, with nothing but liners between the songs for the entire 45 minutes of this recording.
If you’re confused by the logos, it might be because the call letters and format shifted around a bit, so the history of this AM/FM simulcast is a bit confusing, even to me. The bottom logo appears to be the current AM/FM combo which is different than the one in this aircheck.
In all, this is a very unimpressive and rather disappointing aircheck. Its a good example of where radio was headed, just four years after Telcom ’96. Still, if you remember this station, you might have heard it in this incarnation, just before it switched to easy listening. Perhaps there are some fond memories of Myrtle Beach in this recording.
