WXXP (Party 105) – Long Island, NY – 8/30/98 – Fester

Recorded 16 years ago today, this is a sample of Long Island’s Party 105 just a few months after its debut. With the legendary Mitch Craig as its voice, and a high-energy presentation featuring both dance and hip-hop selections, Party 105 was more reminiscent of Rhythmic CHRs from the late 80’s and early 90’s. (Most of its peers in the format at this time were focused mostly or entirely on hip-hop, with a less aggressive approach.) Per Wikipedia, Party 105 has undergone numerous format tweaks and call letter changes over the years.
