107.1 WFHN - Fun 107
WFHN (Fun 107) – Fairhaven/New Bedford, MA – 6/21/98
“Fun 107″ (107.1 WFHN Fairhaven/New Bedford, MA) certainly lived up to its relatively unique name. In the late 90′s, it was one of the best-sounding stations around, offering a Rhythmic-leaning Mainstream CHR format that even included a few dance/rhythmic classics. Voiced by the late and great Brian James, here’s a sample of the station from the first day of summer in 1998.
At the time this aircheck was recorded, the Fun 107 imaging was being used as a stunt format for then sister station WZZP Atlantic City, NJ which we previously spotlighted here.
Jock doing a remote is Bren St. James (Lafferty) at the beginning of this recording. Bren has been out of radio for years, but is currently a mobile DJ. The on-air jock Ricky Lawrence later used his real name Larry Soares and was part of the Fun 107 morning show up until just last year (2015). After he left Fun 107, he went to work with former co-worker Scott Reiniche at Today’s Easy 99.1 in Plymouth, MA.
