**New York City’s 95.5 WPLJ will end its current programming format on Friday 5/31/19, following a sale from Cumulus to Educational Media Foundation. We will be featuring airchecks of this longtime CHR/Hot AC station from the past 30+ years throughout this week.** Courtesy of the now-defunct mp3airchecks.com, here’s a sample of New York’s WPLJ during as days as “Power 95”, but after the station adopted a lean towards more adult-oriented, pop/rock hits. Interestingly, the station also used “Musicradio” (made famous by WABC-AM) and “The All New PLJ” as supplementary monikers. Visit Wikipedia for more information on the history of this station.
Chicago’s Hot 94-7 FM represented the high-energy, but short-lived aftermath of “Hell 94.7”, and the final (as of this writing) attempt of this frequency to compete with heritage Rhythmic CHR WBBM-FM (B96). Please visit this page (scroll about halfway down) for more details.
