WAQQ is among the more interesting radio stations to be featured on FMairchecks.com. The “Edge” name instantly brings to mind “Alternative”. But while the station certainly played a lot of Modern Rock selections, it was still very much a CHR that even played recurrents from the likes of C&C Music Factory and Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch. Also included is a rather amusing, lengthy sweeper (voiced by Mark Driscoll) listing many (if not all) areas in the market capable of receiving the station.
This aircheck was recorded 19 years ago this month, and presumably at the beginning of the “Edge” area. According to Wikipedia, the call letters changed to WEDJ at some point — they were apparently still WAQQ at the time of this recording.
Please be aware that while this montage is quite listenable, some rather significant doses of static are heard throughout.
