92.3 KKFR - Power 92

KKFR (Power 92) – Phoenix – 1/4 & 1/5/99 – Mini Salas & AL3 (Power Workout @ Noon)

kkfr-dec-1998


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 focus of its Rhythmic CHR format.  However, around January 1999, the station began incorporating elements reminiscent of its days as a more traditional Rhythmic CHR in the early and mid-90’s.

  • Heard here are the first two editions of “The Power Workout at Noon” mixshow (recorded 16 years ago yesterday/today), which featured more Dance music than the station had played in quite some time.
  • As shown above, the slogan had transitioned from “Where Hip-Hop Lives” to one that Power 92 had used twice before — the presumably more advertiser-friendly “Today’s Hottest Music”.
  • Eric Edwards joined Geoff St. John as the voice of the station.  Edwards was the primary voice on Power 92 in the early 90’s.
  • Selected Dance and Pop selections returned to the regular-programming playlist. Eiffel 65’s “Blue” and *NSYNC’s “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time On You” are the first two that come to mind.
