99.7 WAPW - Power 99
WAPW (Power 99) – Atlanta – Summer/Fall ’91 – Telephone Tony
This is a sample of Atlanta’s Power 99 — which, according to Wikipedia, was the “dominant top-40 station in the Southeast” at the start of the 90’s — a little over a year before it flipped to Modern Rock as 99x.
The personality is Telephone Tony — later known as Tone E. Fly. Before Power 99, Telephone Tony was Kid Kelly’s producer/sidekick at Z100/NY and now hosts afternoon drive at KHTC “96.3 Now” in Minneapolis-St. Paul (under the name Tony Fly, according to 963now.com)
Many thanks to Robyn Watts for contributing this aircheck and description.
Could you name the songs that are cut when the Power 99fm Electronic Jingle came on along with the DeeJays?
