“WLDW” (Wild 106.7) – southwest Philadelphia – 11/24/13 (OPEN HOUSE PARTY w/Kannon)

This is a sample of an apparent pirate radio station with its signal on 106.7 FM in southwest Philadelphia. It identified itself with the call letters WLDW, which were used (legally) by 96.5 FM ten years prior, albeit for only a short period of time, much to the chagrin of then-owner Beasley, as demonstrated in this amusing announcement voiced by-then consultant Jerry Clifton. The programming heard on the aircheck was of the syndicated “Open House Party”. Given the station’s illegal status, it’s unclear how they were able to air this content. It’s unknown whether this operation still exists with an on-air signal. This aircheck was recorded from its online stream, which continues to this day via its website. Thanks for Ryan Bishop for contributing.  

WXXL (XL-106.7 FM) – Orlando – July 1992

“Of all of life’s experiences…you must at one time or another encounter…RAVE”. Voiced by the legendary Mitch Craig, this is a sample of Orlando’s longtime CHR during progressive underground dance mix programming.

KCHX (Power 106.7) – Midland-Odessa, TX – Dec ’96 – Leo

KKND (106.7 the End) – New Orleans – Oct ’96 – Rod Ryan
