Tony Impieri’s “Road Trip ’89”, Part 1 | February 19, 1989
Back in 2005, Contributor Tony Impieri sent in a two part scope of an East Coast road trip in which he recorded radio all the way! Talk about distracted driving! Well, back in 1989 there was no such offense on the books, and we’re thankful for that, since this is a fantastic cross-section of radio stations heard from Pennsylvania through Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Tennessee and part of Georgia.
I’m struck, once again, how many radio stations were airing straight-ahead Top 40 formats. No AAA, No variations of Rap or “Hot”AC, just either Adult Contemporary, CHR, Album/Active Rock or Country and Oldies. REAL 50s & 60s Oldies! Yeah, 1989 was a VERY long time ago!
