WXXY/WYXX (103.1 WXXY) – Chicago – 8/6/99 (FIRST DAY)
On August 6, 1999, Big City Radio debuted one of the first radio stations in the U.S. focused exclusively on classic hits from the 1980’s. The station’s outstanding presentation made it stand out among the countless others that attempted to clone it in the years that followed.
The actual sign-on (along with the stunting that preceded it, and a detailed synopsis) can be heard on our sister site, The Format Change Archive. The very brief aircheck posted here represents a little more of the first hour.
