KEDJ (106.3/96.3 the Edge) – 11/1/94 – Willobee & Jayn Sayd

“Morning Breath Theater” morning show on Modern Rock 106.3 the Edge (KEDJ Phoenix) with Willobee and Jayn Sayd – recorded November 1, 1994 (21 years ago yesterday). The station was broadcasting on 106.3 and 96.3 at this time. Per info from Eric Stein: “96.3 was a translator atop South Mountain, call letters K242AG. KEDJ used this to improve East Valley coverage before the KHOT-FM simulcast began in August 1995. The translator later was used by another signal-troubled local station or maybe a religious group, and moved to 95.9 for a while as K240CV after KSWG moved to 96.3.”

KOY-FM (Y95) – Phoenix – Summer/Fall 1991

  In the late 80′s, and the very early 90′s, Phoenix was one of the best markets for fans of the CHR format.  Nationwide Communications’ heritage KZZP found itself in a heated battle with The Broadcast Group’s Power 92 (KKFR) and Edens Broadcasting’s Y95 (KOY-FM). KZZP dominated for most of the 80′s.  But with changes in management, personalities, and pop music tastes — ratings dropped significantly in the early 90′s, leading to a format and name change in April 1991. Y95, capitalizing on the changes and later demise of KZZP, enjoyed ratings success at the start of the decade. This is an official station composite of the station from the Summer and Fall of 1991.
