“102.5 WFMF” is one of the more heritage CHR/Top 40 stations in the United States – although, according to Wikipedia, it has strayed away from its format and especially its name multiple times over the years. Like many CHR outlets in that era, WFMF took a high-energy, dance-leaning approach. NOTE: The logo shown above is not necessarily the one used at the time this aircheck was recorded; it is likely from an earlier era.
In July 1986, Beautiful Music-formatted KQYT “Quiet 95” flipped to Adult Contemporary as “KOY 95.5 FM”. The station eventually began to call itself “Y95” and evolved to Mainstream CHR. This is an unofficial composite of the station about 2 to 3 years after the initial change. With varying degrees of success, Y95 attempted various permutations of Mainstream CHR until September 2, 1993. On that day, it began stunting in preparation for a format change the following day.
