Hot 106

KIOC (Hot 106) – Beaumont, TX – 9/14/97 – Steve Kelly

Recorded 18 years ago today, Hot 106 was one of the earliest examples of the Rhythmic AC format that I’ve encountered. However, per Wikipedia, this was a short-lived era; not long after this aircheck was recorded, the station flipped to Active Rock as “Big Dog 106” – a format it still holds today. My apologies in advance for the heavy doses of static heard throughout this aircheck.

WWKX (Hot 106) – Providence, RI – 8/30/98 – Bobby Z (Sunday Night House Party)

Recorded 16 years ago this weekend, this is a sample of Providence’s Rhythmic CHR recorded during live-to-air Sunday night mixshow programming. Per Wikipedia, the station had been known as “Kicks 106” and later “Kix 106” with a balanced Rhythmic CHR format from 1988 through some point in 1997.
