WWZZ/WWVZ (Z104) – Washington D.C. – 7/18/99 – Hollywood Haze, Billy Bush

Recorded 17 years ago this month, here’s a great sample of the station that represented the Mainstream CHR format in our nation’s capital during the mid to late 90’s.  On this aircheck, Z104 offered a seemingly full-service approach, with traffic and weather elements alongside the music – which is particularly impressive considering that this was recorded on a Sunday evening. Features a promo for the Bush League morning show, starring Billy Bush, who now has his own nationally syndicated program. Z104, at least in its early days, offered a dance-friendly approach similar to nearby WXYV (102.7 ‘XYV) in Baltimore and KZQZ (Z95.7) in San Francisco; all three stations were consulted by Dan Vallie.
