Station Composite, 96.3 WMYQ Miami | 1974

Included in this brand-spanking-new composite from new Contributor Russ Oasis are some of the greatest lines ever spoken into a microphone! Here’s the short-lived WMYQ, which would turn into WMJX 96X the year following this recording.

Contributor Russ Oasis writes:

This is one of the composites I promised. WMYQ only existed in this form for a short period of time, so there isn’t much tape out there. I did the best I could.

AMD – G. Michael McKay
Mid- missing
PMD – Chuck Martin (who went to KHJ as PD)
Nights – Rick Williams (me, Russ Oasis)
Late nights – Lee Baby Simms (no introduction necessary).

Russ explained that he spent many hours digitizing this composite and taking a lackluster tape, turning it into what we hear. This is a mainly monaural work, however, segment two is of Chuck Martin. That is in stereo. The rest appears to be in noise-free mono. I asked our Contributor if he could pin down the date. He replied,

” My best guess would be Nov. of 1974. It’s possible that it’s as late as Jan of 1975, but I lean toward 1974.”

I’ll simply leave the title date generic in 1974.

Composite: 1510 WMEX Boston | October 4-5, 1972

Despite a signal which radiated mostly out over the Atlantic Ocean, the format and 50,000 watts of hit music power is memorable to many from the classic era of Top 40 radio!
