107.9 Cleveland WPHR Power 108

The Top 8 at 8, 107.9 WPHR “Power 108” Cleveland | 1990

“Cat” is playing the hits, captured on tape for posterity on Cleveland’s “Power 108”. Unlike the other recording we have of this station (which appears to be jockless with just sweepers between songs), this is and exciting live show! Digital Underground has the #1 song of the night, but this sure isn’t all Hip Hop, there’s ballads and Heavy Metal represented in Power 108’s playlist!

Is it just me or did virtually every CHR in America do the Top 8 at 8 every night, followed by all requests? It was a great formula, to be sure, but in many cases, by 1992 or 93, many of these hot CHR stations had either gone Alternative, Hip Hop or Country, so one has to wonder what went wrong? Some have speculated that the format simply burned out. In any case, Power 108 was gone by 1992. Its been WENZ since then.

Anyone with information or who remembers the station is invited to comment below!
