Steve Mitchell, 96.3 WMYQ Miami | December 29, 1972

Courtesy of the new Mike Raub Collection, here’s a quarter-hour of the Steve Mitchell Show on the old WMYQ Miami. This is everything you wanted to hear in the “Q” format… Q-Tips, Shotgun “Q” jingles (the same you would hear at KCBQ San Diego during this time period) and the whole shotgun approach to Top 40 radio.

WMYQ was the station which immediately preceeded the station known as 96X – WMJX, which went on to legendary status only to have it’s license revoked by the FCC in 1981. There are other tribute sites to this station on the web, so we won’t get into the particulars of 96X here.
