103.5 WKTU

WKTU (103.5 The New ‘KTU) – New York – 2/10/96 (FIRST HOUR)

18 years ago today, Country WYNY flipped to WKTU, offered what we now call a Rhythmic AC format, and went from worst to first in one rating book – an absolutely remarkable feat for any radio station, particularly in America’s #1 media market.

The actual debut of WKTU is available at our sister site, The Format Change Archive. Posted here is the remainder of approximately the first hour. It includes a lengthy spoken word segment from top brass at Evergreen Media, which owned the station at the time.
