97.5 WABB-FM

97.5 WABB Mobile Final Day Part 1 – 2/29/2012

With a Top 40 heritage that dates back to 1959 via its AM sister all under the management of Dittman Broadcasting, the demise of 97.5 WABB-FM Mobile has hit the radio industry hard. With alumni as varied as WPLJ’s Scott Shannon, WABC-TV meteorologist Bill Evans, Cumulus VP/Programming Mike McVay, and former WNNX Atlanta and WRXP New York PD Leslie Fram, the station was a launching pad for many radio people.

We pick up the station’s morning show just before 7:00 as the morning team of Q-Tip, Nick Fox, and Blondie begin the day long tribute to the station. This segment features interviews with the aforementioned Fram (now Senior VP of Music Strategy at CMT), former Program Director Chris Michaels (now PD/Afternoons at FM100 Memphis), former morning co-host Nina, and former PD Jammer (now PD at B97 New Orleans).

The playlist for this segment remains current based, as the day goes on the station will go back in time musically through the station’s history.
