107.3 FM in Washington, D.C. has been Hot AC as “Mix 107.3″ (for the most part) since 1990. But in the 12 years prior, it was CHR/Top 40 as “Q107″. This is a sample of the station from the peak era for the Mainstream CHR format in the mid 80’s.  By 1988, Q107 offered a rather “hairband”-heavy approach.

Our sister site, Airchexx.com, also features a pair of Q107 samples:

In addition, below are a pair of articles from The Washington Post about the flip from Q107 to Mix 107.3:
