WBUS (99.9 The Bus) – Kankakee, IL – 7/27/96

“Discover America’s Hit Music…the Bus, WBUS.” Offering a unique name and an even more interesting playlist, WBUS was an interesting Mainstream CHR station that originated in Kankakee, IL but could be heard in parts of Chicago (about an hour to the North.) Researching the history of this station, it was considered very Rhythmic given its rural roots. It was also apparently a huge success financially — yet, only about a month after this aircheck was recorded, the station changed its format following a sale to a Spanish-language broadcaster. A couple years later, the Bus returned to 100.7 FM with the WBVS calls and had approximately a five-year run on that frequency.
