Jersey Shore

WAYV 95.1 – Atlantic City – 5/14/98 – BJ Taylor

“Serving the Jersey Shore…” This is a sample of Atlantic City’s longtime hit music station, at a time when it was essentially a Hot AC during overnight hours. To this day, the station remains adult-leaning, offering a CHR format that shies away from hip-hop – presumably in large part due to having 99.3 the Buzz as its sister station.

WVRT (Variety 97.7) – Williamsport, PA – 1/20/99 – Joe Mama

“Variety 97.7, WVRT” was (and may still be) one of the best small-market CHRs I’ve ever heard.

WBBO (B98.5) – Monmouth/Ocean, NJ – 3/19/99 – Alan Fox

This is a sample of the original B98.5. Per Wikipedia, the station took on three other identities between February 2005 and September 2010, before returning to its previous approach. The aircheck is hosted by Alan Fox, whose résumé includes a three-year run as Program/Research/Production Director at WBSS “Boss 97 FM” in Atlantic City, NJ.
