WRQX (Q107) – Washington, D.C. – 4/4/86 – Sandy Weaver

107.3 FM in Washington, D.C. has been Hot AC as “Mix 107.3″ since 1990. But in the 12 years prior, it was CHR/Top 40 as “Q107″. This is a sample of the station fromtthe peak era for the Mainstream CHR format in the mid 80’s – although the station arguably had what today sounds like a slight Adult lean.  And two years later, Q107 offered a rather “hairband”-heavy approach.  Thanks to Robyn Watts for contributing both of these airchecks. Our sister site,, also features a pair of Q107 samples: Uncle Johnny, 12/26/83 Celeste Clark, 12/26/85 In addition, below are a pair of articles from The Washington Post about the flip from Q107 to Mix 107.3: Article #1 Article #2
