WKTU (103.5 The New ‘KTU) – New York – 10/17/97 – Hollywood Hamilton & Goumba Johnny

In February 1996, Country WYNY flipped to WKTU, offered what we now call a Rhythmic AC format, and went from worst to first in one rating book – an absolutely remarkable feat for any radio station, particularly in America’s #1 market. This is a sample of the station about 18 months after it debut. This particular aircheck is one of my personal favorites. This aircheck appears to be a continuation of another ‘KTU aircheck on our site — the other one was recorded earlier on this same day.

WKTU (103.5 The New KTU) – Diane Pryor & WHTZ (Z100) – Billy Hammond – New York – 10/15/98

  Both recorded 15 years ago today, this is a sample of the two dominant CHR stations in the largest U.S. media market during the late 1990’s. WKTU offered what we now call a Rhythmic AC format, while Z100, true to its roots, aired a straight-ahead Mainstream CHR format.
