106.7 WXXL - XL106.7

WXXL (XL-106.7) – Orlando – 8/25/99 – Kid Cruz, Nikki Knight

Recorded 15 years ago this week, this is a montage of Orlando’s longtime Mainstream CHR outlet.

1999 was the peak of the teen pop craze, and Orlando was the home to multiple boybands – resulting in an abundance of Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync and the like on this aircheck.

WXXL’s production values at this time were a throwback to a bygone era. The station was still employing the legendary Mitch Craig for voicework (seemingly several years after most CHR stations had stopped doing so). In addition, at least during the 10pm hour (and presumably most others), the station featured live legal IDs (including announcement of the current time!) read by the jock who was on-air during that daypart.
