96.3 WBBM-FM - B96
WBBM-FM (B96) – Chicago – 12/31/97 (TOP 96 OF 1997) – Roxanne & Brian Middleton
During a significant portion of the 1990′s, Chicago’s B96 offered a Dance music-heavy format focused on currents — making it one of the very few major market, full signal commercial stations in the U.S. to find success with that formula.
However, as reflected on this aircheck, by 1997 the station became more of a broad-based Rhythmic CHR, featuring less Dance hits and more R&B, hip-hop, and pop selections. Even a handful of rock-oriented tunes more common to Modern AC stations were featured on B96’s playlist.
