93.1 WDRQ

WDRQ (93-1 The New ‘DRQ) – Detroit – 3/24/97 – Jay Towers

Following the “worst-to-first” success of New York’s “103.5 The New ‘KTU” in 1996, a number of stations around the U.S. attempted similar formats (essentially Rhythmic AC) in their markets. One was “93-1 The New DRQ” in Detroit, as demonstrated on this aircheck. Features the “All Request Lunch Blocks”, hosted by longtime Detroit personality Jay Towers.

This was a fun station to listen to, highlighted by an all-around high-energy presentation. More information can be found on the WDRQ Wikipedia page. You also may wish to check out the other DRQ aircheck posted here.
