The Breakfast Club on WAPW “Power 99” Atlanta | September 1991

99.7 FM Atlanta WAPW WARM WNNX WWWQ Power 99 99x

A year before Atlanta’s Alternative station, WNNX “99X” would replace Power 99, WAPW was still a hot CHR pulling decent numbers, and killing off competitors WZGC “Z93” and WQXI-FM 94-Q in the process.

Here’s a look at the morning show on Power 99, known as The Breakfast Club.


  1. Thanks for putting this up. At the time this was recorded, Power 99 was slowly migrating back toward Mainstream CHR after a brief period where they were leaning heavily toward Dance, but nevertheless it was still one of the hottest CHR’s in the country at that time, hands down. Hopefully you’ll have a chance to put up the rest of this composite where we can hear what the rest of the day sounded like sometime in the near future. *hint hint* :>)


  2. CHR Fan

    They were a tight station. That was a sad day when they switched to the alternative (to) music format. I was happy when they finally put 99x out of it’s misery and switched back to CHR. Unfortunately “Q100” is barely a fraction of what “Power 99” was. But I guess that’s true of all radio. And those in charge continue to scratch their heads at why people no longer listen to or care about radio… :-/
