100.3 KLRZ - Z100
KLRZ (Pirate Radio Z100) – Larose, LA – 1/7/95
During the early to mid-90’s, many Top 40 stations in the United States leaned towards either Rhythmic music or towards Modern Rock. This is a sample of a station with the latter approach – recorded 19 years ago yesterday.
According to Wikipedia, KLRZ actually targetted the New Orleans market during this time, with a goal of moving the transmitter closer to that area. However, Hurricane Katrina effectively ended those plans.
It has moved about as close it can to New Orleans…it is licensed as a class C1 now. Originally, it was a C2. It can’t move any closer due to WNSL 100.3 Hattiesburg/Laurel MS.
Wow, Dead Eye Dick’s ‘New Age Girl’. I haven’t heard that for the longest time.
