KKFR (Power 92) – Phoenix – 12/31/92 (Top 92 of ’92) – Kid Corona

92 might be leaving your calendar, but it will never leave your radio…” — One of the sweepers featured in these snippets of Power 92’s countdown at the end of 1992. Includes Kid Corona (one of at least three personalities heard on this aircheck) mentioning (via information from a listener) that the #1 song on the station from 20 years prior (1972) was “Theme from Shaft”.  (Does anyone know what format resided on 92.3 FM at that time?)

I loved the high-energy, laser-sound-effect-dominated presentation style used by KKFR (and its clones) during this period.  I wish that stations focusing on this type of music today would take it a step further and employ the production values from that era.

An additional composite of Kid Corona can be heard at this page on our sister site, Airchexx.com.
