KKUU (U-92.7) – Indio/Palm Springs, CA – 7/10/98

U-92.7 hit the airwaves sometime in the mid to late 90’s. Initially, as demonstrated on this aircheck, the station offered a rather unfocused but entertaining Rhythmic CHR format. Over time, the playlist was tightened so that it had a focus on hip-hop and R&B.

This is a sample of what was once the dominant CHR in Southern California’s Coachella Valley.  Another aircheck of Power 100.5, recorded around the same time, is available here.

KPSI (Power 100.5) – Palm Springs, CA – Summer 2000 – Dwayne Wayne

A sample of what was once the dominant CHR — “The Desert’s #1 Hit Music Station” — in Southern California’s Coachella Valley.  Includes some rather odd production elements (in terms of both content and placement.)
