On the morning of August 2 1983, Z100 signed on with Scott Shannon, & JR Nelson and the brand new Top Forty format!  This was the first time New York had a true Top 40 station on FM in years. Transmitting from First Mountain in West Orange, the tower was also the home of WSOU and WFME. Scott Shannon Always referred to that transmitter as the Pea Shooter The station was on that tower in Jersey for the first few days until Aug 4, when they were finally broadcasting from the Empire State Building. Scott Shannon Always referred to that transmitter as the Flamethrower! They could be heard clearly across all of Metro New York. The rest was history, Shannon & his crew on Z100 went from “Worst, to first” in only 74 days!

This aircheck, from Z100’s first day on air, finds Scott Shannon doing double duty, hosting afternoon drive, after signing the station on the air that same day. -Ellis
