105.1 KZRQ - Star 105 FM

KZRQ (Star 105 FM) – Albuquerque, NM – 2/24/97 – Dave Dart & Terry Young


Star 105 was another station that seemingly wanted to clone the success achieved by New York’s WKTU, which launched as a Rhythmic AC the year prior and skyrocketed to the top of the ratings in one book.

This montage (recorded 18 years ago today) features PD Dave Dart (who made me the aircheck, and met me for lunch while on a visit to Phoenix) and all of my all time favorite personalities, Terry “Motormouth” Young.

KZRQ had an excellent high-energy presentation, similar to WDRQ in Detroit (which was another KTU clone.) I love the legal ID in particular – “KZRQ-FM Santa Fe/Albuquerque…and sometimes beyond.”

  1. I vaguely recall this station. I was hoping that typing the call letters into a search box would bring up in depth the station’s format and personalities. Anybody recall specifics?
