Tape Vault #16: WHTZ, KRQT, KRBE

We had back to 1994 in this edition.  Tune…in…your…head…

WHTZ 100.3 “Z100″ New York

Another visit to 1994 when Z100 skewed rock and sounded great… Several OJ Simpson trial references in Z100’s liners as well as an early e-mail address, but no website, as radio stations started to embrace the Internet stick out here.

KRQT 107.5 “Rocket 107″ Houston

Radio #TBT: WHTZ, WHHH, KKYK, KTUX, KIOC, KFYX

From my project of digitizing my cassette radio vault, for #TBT, I pulled some more audio from the radio past: New York’s WHTZ “Z100,” Indianapolis’s WHHH “Hoosier 96″‘s first day,  Little Rock’s KKYK, Shreveport/Bossier City’s KTUX “Tux 99,” KIOC “Power Hits K106″ Beaumont/Port Arthur/Orange, and Texarkana’s KFYX “107FYX, the Fix.”

WHTZ 100.3 “Z100″ New York

I posted an aircheck from WHTZ from 1991 a couple of weeks ago.  This aircheck comes from a couple of years later, 1994, when WHTZ had shifted towards a rock-leaning top 40 outlet.  WHTZ sounded great in this era.
