KKFR (Power 92) – Phoenix – 12/31/92 (Top 92 of ’92) – Supersnake, Kid Corona & Big Daddy

“92 might be leaving your calendar, but it will never leave your radio…” — One of the sweepers featured in these snippets of Power 92’s countdown at the end of 1992.

KSJM – Power FM 97.5 – Tucson, AZ – 12/23-24/96 – Kid Corona

In the mid-90’s, KSJM “Power FM 97.5” was one of two bilingual (English/Spanish) Rhythmic CHRs serving the Tucson market.   This aircheck, recorded two nights before Christmas 1996, is hosted by Kid Corona. A sample of KSJM’s primary competitor, KOHT “Hot 98 FM”, was posted a few hours ago. It was recorded on the same evening, and interestingly, was hosted by a personality with a similar name (Kid Loco). Comparing these two airchecks, it seems that KSJM was the more Spanish-leaning of the two stations.
