  1. Steve West on the Mighty FM 100 and the Whatever Weekend! That station was pretty much the only thing I liked about my miserable year in the Bluff City.

    1. Ha! Well, my show… and my tenure was probably an anomaly. Everywhere else both in Memphis and every other market is full of liners, long music sweeps with two talkovers and two stopsets… and for some odd reason Lance Ballance ignored or simply allowed me to play like a 70s guy on our Whatever Weekends. To my knowledge, I’m the only one that got away with that approach, perhaps cuzz I worked for peanuts haha. I even suggested he pull out the old Scott Shannon era CHR JAM FM 100 jingles for effect but that went over like a lead balloon. I guess they didn’t want to go THAT far.

  2. Steve come back and save FM100 man it’s went way downhill since then 🙁 They play the same 5 songs over and over no “mix” at all unless you consider all the new tween music a mix. They don’t even play any 80’s music anymore! I love to come back to listen to these, I grew up listening to the station and its a legend! So sad to see it the way it is now 🙁

  3. Incredible! Great personality, not restricted to stupid liners and 10 minute stop-sets…and not afraid to say the time on the air…phones…reminds me of great radio days, like Y-100 Miami…approach circa 74/75…too bad 3 companies ruined the business.

    1. Are you kidding? I broke all the rules! But, I really had Tom Prestigiacomo to thank for that. It was his advice. Too bad things didn’t work out at that station. I loved it.

  4. At 0:19, “I Just want to be your Everything” was almost thirty years old in August ’05. Also, the oldest Gibb brother is the only one living.

  5. Steve, who produced that awesome top hour bed and what package was it off of? For what it’s worth that bed is on my top top hours list!
