98.3 KOHT - Hot 98 FM

KOHT (Hot 98 FM) – Tucson, AZ – 12/23/96 – Kid Loco

In the mid-90’s, KOHT “Hot 98 FM” was one of two bilingual (English/Spanish) Rhythmic CHRs serving the Tucson market.  This aircheck, recorded two nights before Christmas 1996 (16 years ago today), is hosted by Kid Loco and features a “Pump It or Dump It” segment in which listeners provide their opinions on what ended up being one of the biggest hits of this era.

Amusingly, one of the listeners who called in to voice his opinion (Chris Jones) apparently received a shout out from another listener, later in the aircheck.

KOHT lives on today as “Hot 98.3” (not sure if it’s still bilingual), and is co-owned with heritage Mainstream CHR KRQQ “93.7 KRQ”.

  1. Hot 98.3 has been strictly a Rhythmic CHR (and hasn’t been bilingual) now for the better part of the past decade. Do you have any airchecks from Power 1490?

  2. I don’t – but R Dub posted at least one on Youtube:

    On a related note, have you heard about this?

    Assuming it hasn’t been released yet, I’m quite seriously considering RSVP’ing for the premiere!

    • This is Great..Flashbacks are always fun!!!

  3. YES!!! Check out the Power 1490 movie!!!
