WFHN (Fun 107) – Fairhaven/New Bedford, MA – 5/30/99 – Jennifer Hart

“Fun 107” (107.1 WFHN Fairhaven/New Bedford, MA) certainly lives up to its relatively unique name, even to this day.  In the late 90’s, it was one of the best-sounding stations around, offering a Rhythmic-leaning Mainstream CHR format that even included a few dance/rhythmic classics.  Production-wise, the enthusiastic delivery of the voice guy (can’t recall his name — can anyone help?) and jingles were outstanding.  This aircheck is from an early evening in late May 1999. EDIT: The voice of the station was Pat Garrett. Thanks Jeremy Andrews for the info!

WWKX (Hot 106) – Providence, RI – 8/30/98 – Bobby Z (Sunday Night House Party)

Recorded 16 years ago this weekend, this is a sample of Providence’s Rhythmic CHR recorded during live-to-air Sunday night mixshow programming. Per Wikipedia, the station had been known as “Kicks 106” and later “Kix 106” with a balanced Rhythmic CHR format from 1988 through some point in 1997.
