QuickChexx: Bill Lee, 103.5 WAPP “Hot 103” Lake Success NY | July 29, 1985
New Contributor Marty Glenn Siegel has been waiting a few years for this to post. Its an excellent one, too!
Broadway Bill Lee (WTIC-FM, KFRC, WLOL, WCBS-FM) mentions he’ll be going back to Minneapolis after his show, so one has to wonder if this was an audition or just a visit. It’s mighty good to hear Lee at his rhyming best, knowing he’d be spending a lot of time in the Big Apple in times ahead.
WAPP had been an AOR (Album-Oriented Rock) formatted station until fairly recently at the time of this aircheck. It sounded like this. Prior to its Rock format, 103.5 aired Beautiful Music as WTFM. Licensed to Lake Success, NY, the station served (and still does today as Dance oriented WKTU) the greater New York City area. This is from WAPP’s CHR era.
