105.1 WBIX - Jammin 105

WBIX (Jammin 105) – New York – 1/11/99 – Supersnake, Linda Energy

During the late 1990’s, one of the biggest fads to sweep U.S. radio was Rhythmic Oldies a.k.a. “Jammin Oldies”. This is a sample of the station programming the format in Market #1, in its earliest days, recorded 15 years ago this week.

Most of the aircheck is hosted by longtime Phoenix CHR personality Supersnake (presumably remotely?). The call letters would eventually change from WBIX to WTJM to match the station’s moniker.

  1. “…from the top of a really tall building with blinking red lights on it, so planes don’t fly into it…” Of course, 105.1 always transmitted from the Empire State Building, but still eerie hearing that today in the post 9/11 world.

  2. This was a stupid move by the stations owners clear channel media they had a hit station on there hands jammin 105.1 and a hit morning show with George Wallace but they said that’s not good enough and they switch formats to power 105.1 which I hate. They need to dump power 105.1 and bring back jammin 105.1 or even mix 105.1 wmxv or 105.1 wnsr soft rock. New York radio has made some poor choices why do we a simulcast of the fan sports radio 660 wean or espn 10.50 bring back 98.7 kiss fm or smooth jazz cd 101.9 or I’ll even take 101.9 wrxp.
