80’s jingles

WBPM (B94) * Kingston/Poughkeepsie, NY * 1/23/99

  WBPM (B94) in New York’s Hudson Valley is one of the most unique stations I’ve ever heard. Musically, it offered an unfocused Rhythmic CHR format that featured many not-so-mainstream Dance selections.  Production-wise, it used dated jingles and sweepers — presumably from the station’s glory days in the 1980’s — voiced by the legendary Charlie Van Dyke.

WXSS (103.7 Kiss-FM) – Milwaukee – 9/20/99

This is a sample of Milwaukee’s 103.7 Kiss-FM about a year and a half after its launch. The station represented one of the finest examples of Mainstream CHR I’ve ever heard, offering multiple hits from multiple contemporary genres, without any sort of “lean”. In addition, the duo of 1980’s style jingles and Mitch Craig voiceovers made this station almost one of a kind for its era.
