Today’s Hottest Music is on Power 92″. This aircheck, recorded in the middle of the night between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 1995, represents the sound of KKFR (92.3) Glendale/Phoenix that led the station to an al-time high 7.0 Arbitron share (12+). At this time, Power 92 offered superb all-around music, air talent, and production values. It’s somewhat surreal to listen to this aircheck and realize that a live jock (Brian Simpson) was on the air during this holiday time period, reading a live legal ID — both of those elements are virtually unheard-of today.
Included is a shaky-voiced call-in from yours truly, requesting a version of a song that I had never (and still have never) heard on any other station.
