Recorded on Independence Day Weekend 1992, in the BEST city for celebrating the holiday, here is a sample of San Diego’s longtime Rhythmic CHR, Jammin’ Z90. This is definitely one of the more unique-sounding Rhythmic CHRs I’ve ever heard – it almost sounded like a Rhythmic Oldies station at times. Be sure to check out the other Z90 aircheck posted here, from the same weekend in 1994.
“All New, All Dance” – this aircheck, from November 1996, represents the sound of Channel 9-3-3 (KHTS San Diego) in its earliest days. It offered an outstanding music mix, talent, sweepers, and all-around production values. IMHO, this is what a Dance CHR station should sound like, and it’s the best I’ve personally ever heard. However, the masses did not agree – KHTS evolved to a more conventional Rhythmic CHR by the Spring of 1997. –
