Tim Byrd, 1390 WXTC (AM) “Charleston’s Oldies Station” | June, 1988

Once again from California Aircheck via Contributor Robyn Watts, we present more from Charleston SC.

WXTC (AM) 1390 has flipped formats more than a few times since the 1980s. In this recording made in June, 1988, WXTC is branded as “Charleston’s Oldies Station”. Even though 102.5 WXLY is also doing a form of oldies, er, Classic Hits at the same time, WXTC gets the credits for the right formatics. Decent jingles (from the same package WXTC-FM used), faux drake formatics and even the old RKO-style news sounder.

The jock is Tim Byrd, who was heard on many Charleston stations over the years, here doing wakeups on WXTC.

Longtime Charlestonians will remember 1390 as Charleston’s Rock station, WCSC. It was a good sounding station through most of the 1970s. There is a tribute website on the web created to remember the heritage 1390 WCSC – Click here for wcscradio.com.
