KKFR (Power 92) – Phoenix – 11/19/00 – The Manic Hispanic, Charlie Huero & DJ Shy (Aquanet Set)
Since June of 1997, KKFR — both at its former home on 92.3 FM, and at its current home on 98.3 FM — has made hip-hop and R&B the primary (if not exclusive) focus of its Rhythmic CHR format. However, in the early 2000’s, it would offer a return to its dance-oriented roots for a brief period each Sunday night. A portion of the “Lowrider Oldies Show” (also known as the “Sunday Night Old School Show”) was known as the “Aquanet Set”. This program — whose name refers to the hairspray-laden members of freestyle acts in the 1980’s — originated (?) and was made famous by KKFR’s former sister station, KPWR (Power 106) in Los Angeles.
