100.7 Miami Ft. Lauderdale, South Florida, Y100, WHYI, CHR, Jade Alexander, Kenny Walker, 1990s, 1996

Courtesy of Contributor Steve Bleecker, here’s yet another in our short series of Ratings king, Station Owner and fantastic jock Tom Birch!
As of this writing, there’s one more aircheck of Mr. Birch on Y100 and its got all the energy you’ve come to expect! Its amazing that FM took over the Miami market so early in the 1970s, but given how these airchecks sound, one would expect FM to triumph even at that stage of the evolution of FM broadcasting!

I’m not sure that there’s much I can write that either hasn’t been said, or can’t be heard from this great recording! Just listen and enjoy. Meanwhile, I’ll pull out the remaining airchecks from the tape this came from, YOU get ready to hear some fantastic radio!

Aircheck #1,314 since May 2, 2002!
