WSNX (104.5) – Grand Rapids, MI – 6/1/98 – Brita, Fast Eddie
WSNX was one of the standout CHRs of the mid/late 90′s. It offered an upbeat, recurrent-friendly music mix accompanied by outstanding jingles & sweepers, voiced by the late and great Brian James. Very impressive for a medium-sized market. This aircheck was recorded 17 years ago today.
I remember this era. I was probably listening that very day. There was a really strong storm/wind burst that traveled through a long area. Caused some major wind damage in Milwaukee and continued on to West Michigan. They’re talking about it on this aircheck.
WSNX has always been a regular visitor during DX conditions. It would come in all the time. I have a few tapes of this station that I recorded on this side of the lake in August of 1998.
They moved to their current transmitter site not long after.
WSNX has always been an interesting CHR. Really interesting a market size like West Michigan having a heavy-Urban CHR.
