Date of Recording: September 21, 1978
Station: 98.7 WXLO New York (Other Call letters used: WOR-FM, WRKS, WEPN)
Featured Air Talent: Sue O’Neal


Aircheck recordings are of various quality. Most were direct recordings from the receiver patched over to a tape deck of some kind. Others are simply an incidental recording, where someone put a microphone in front of a radio speaker. This appears to be one of those recordings.

WXLO is the same great 99X! At this point in 1978, the station sounds Rock-heavy. They are emphasizing ‘album cuts’, which, at the 98.7 New York WXLO 99Xtime, were a staple of crosstown Album Rock stations WPLJ and WNEW-FM. This was probably in an attempt to counter-program against all the Disco-laden pop music flooding the charts and the airwaves of WNBC and WABC.

    Notable absence of jingles in this air check – not even the 99x shotgun in evidence. Sue sounds good here, but perhaps she’s a little more comfortable in the air check from ‘XLO in 79 you have elsewhere on the site.
