95.7 KCHZ - Channel Z-95.7

KCHZ (Channel Z-95.7) – Kansas City, MO – 6/20/98 – Mike O’Reilly

Channel Z-95.7


According to Wikipedia, Channel Z-95.7 debuted as a Modern AC in January 1997. At some point in 1998, the station evolved to the first of many variations of Mainstream CHR. It seems that this aircheck was recorded in the middle of that transition – the “Groove Nation” mixshow seems to have been produced for Modern AC outlets, yet Channel Z-95.7 aired a listener’s phone call requesting “Too Close” by Next, which was more appropriate for a CHR station.

  1. I remember this station! I lived near KC around that time and remember the Modern AC days, then the transition to CHR to compete against KMXV. Nowadays its still Top 40 (after 4 years as a Rhythmic) as “The Vibe” and owned by Cumulus. (By the way, the transition to Top 40 was around February.)
