KISF (107.3) – Kansas City – 7/3/96 – Jason Justice

Per Wikipedia, 107.3 FM in Kansas City began evolving from Top 40 to Modern Rock in late 1994, yet chose to kept the “Kiss” name (albeit shifting from “Kiss 107.3” to “107.3 Kiss-FM”). The imaging and presentation was also reminiscent of its previous format.  The station had adopted a more common modern rock approach by the summer of 1995. And by a year later, when this aircheck was recorded, the moniker was simply “107.3”.  

WLKT (104.5 the Cat) – Lexington, KY – 6/8 & 6/10/96 – Shane Collins

“We’re in the tune in your head…Lexington’s new 104.5 the Kat.” In the early to mid 90’s, as the CHR format disappeared across the U.S., the idea of a single station offering multiple genres of music had become foreign in many areas. This is presumably why WLKT heavily employed the slogan “Music for All People” on this aircheck (which I believe was recorded not long after the sign-on) — and you will hear, they did a great job of living up to that promise. Note that this aircheck consists of several segments recorded on two separate days (not a single continous recording), so certain songs are heard twice.
