WKTU (103.5 The New ‘KTU) – New York – 10/17/97 – Hollywood Hamilton & Goumba Johnny
In February 1996, Country WYNY flipped to WKTU, offered what we now call a Rhythmic AC format, and went from worst to first in one rating book – an absolutely remarkable feat for any radio station, particularly in America’s #1 market. This is a sample of the station about 18 months after it debut. This particular aircheck is one of my personal favorites.
This aircheck appears to be a continuation of another ‘KTU aircheck on our site — the other one was recorded earlier on this same day.
I love 103.5 KTU airchecks!!
We need more, especially from 1997 and 1998.
1996 seems a bit late in the era for a large metropolitan to get a dance station. Did New York have anything before that 92-95 ?
