Bobby D., WRFY Y102 Reading (PA) | August 29, 1998

  Description by Steve West Here’s one of those ‘checks we don’t really know much about, other than it’s from Reading, Pennsylvania. The signal probably makes it into Philadelphia, although probably very weak. Here’s Bobby D., playing the (mostly) Rock hits on […]

Chris Emory, 93.1 WPOC Baltimore | October 24, 1998

Here’s a clip of WPOC that I recorded while parked at a truck stop on my way to North Carolina with a load of something.  I was a truck driver for a few years after my military service and my professional radio […]

104.3 KXME Honolulu – “Extreme Radio @ 104.3” | February, 1998

A Rock-Leaning CHR aimed at men? That’s what this was all about. Jerry Clifton had in mind to take KXME in a Rock/Rap direction, hoping to build on ratings. It didn’t work, and six months later, 104.3 went the other direction, and […]

Dan Ingram, 101.1 KRTH Los Angeles | June 24, 1998 – Part 1

East meets West! Or, to put it a different way, try to imagine yourself in 1970-something, listening to Dan Ingram on 93/KHJ. Big Dan delivered a one liner better than Robert W. Morgan! This proves something else. RKO General’s quick into and […]

The Top 5 At 10 – A Sample of WSSX Charleston, SC | July 28, 1998

I wish I could tell you who the jock is on this aircheck, but in the 45 minutes of the original recording, he never says his name once. No jock imaging is heard… nothing! But its obvious from this 6-plus minute scope […]

WKQI “Q95-5” FM Detroit | July 25, 1998

“It’s a Hotter than Hanson Weekend” Front row seats to Hanson at the Palace… tickets given away all weekend long. I think I’d rather be run over by a garbage truck, but the kids liked Hanson, like they enjoyed the Spice Girls. […]

Steve Brown, 104.1 WQAL Cleveland | July 4, 1998

“Cleveland’s Q104, The Best Variety of the 80s, 90s and Today!” Really, we wish we could just exhibit this unscoped! The audio quality is stellar, the music is SO good (hey, remember, this is before American Idol made everything sound generic), and […]

Jordan, 96.9 WLAN-FM Lancaster PA | August 29, 1998

There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of posted airchecks from the late 1990s anywhere, and possibly because by then, radio had gelled into the early stages of what we have today, with perhaps more live voices than now. Either […]
