1600 WINX

WINX 1600 AM – Washington, DC – 12/13/98 – Tony Burke (?)

On occassion, we will break our own rules and post material from the AM band. Here’s the first of two examples that will appear on the site this week. “Top 40, Fun!…WINX!” was a short-lived, ill-fated second attempt at making an CHR format work on 1600 AM in the Washington, DC area.

  2. My dad Jim Goff was a night time DJ at winx 1600 am in Rockville in the early 60’s. I remember him saying that the boss left notes all over for the dj’s to communicate with them. I am trying to remember if he had a radio name he went by.,.anyone remember?

  3. This aircheck was actually recorded 4 days before it transitioned to Spanish AC. In fact, just before midnight on the day this was recorded, the station aired its final Top 40 tunes just before 6 pm that day before WINX went off the air for 3 days. So in a sense, this is the last day of the Top 40 format.
