WXXP (Party 105) – Long Island, NY – 9/11/98 – Vic the Latino

Recorded 15 years ago this week, this is a sample of Long Island’s Party 105 just a few months after its debut. The station offered an aggressive but balanced Rhythmic CHR format and was voiced by the legendary Mitch Craig at this time. Per Wikipedia, Party 105 has undergone numerous format tweaks and call letter changes over the years.

92.7 WDRE – Garden City/Long Island, NY – 12/6/91 – Doug Frye

This is a sample of the station originally (and later) known as 92.7 WLIR. This was recorded at a time when it was shifting its alternative music focus to a more guitar-based sound, and shortly before the station began simulcasting its programming on a few other signals in and out of its region. More information on the history of this station can be found at WLIR.fm and Wikipedia.
