KOHT (Hot 98 FM) – Tucson, AZ – 12/23/96 – Kid Loco

In the mid-90’s, KOHT “Hot 98 FM” was one of two bilingual (English/Spanish) Rhythmic CHRs serving the Tucson market.  This aircheck, recorded two nights before Christmas 1996 (16 years ago today), is hosted by Kid Loco and features a “Pump It or Dump It” segment in which listeners provide their opinions on what ended up being one of the biggest hits of this era. Amusingly, one of the listeners who called in to voice his opinion (Chris Jones) apparently received a shout out from another listener, later in the aircheck. KOHT lives on today as “Hot 98.3” (not sure if it’s still bilingual), and is co-owned with heritage Mainstream CHR KRQQ “93.7 KRQ”.

KSJM – Power FM 97.5 – Tucson, AZ – 12/23-24/96 – Kid Corona

In the mid-90’s, KSJM “Power FM 97.5” was one of two bilingual (English/Spanish) Rhythmic CHRs serving the Tucson market.   This aircheck, recorded two nights before Christmas 1996, is hosted by Kid Corona. A sample of KSJM’s primary competitor, KOHT “Hot 98 FM”, was posted a few hours ago. It was recorded on the same evening, and interestingly, was hosted by a personality with a similar name (Kid Loco). Comparing these two airchecks, it seems that KSJM was the more Spanish-leaning of the two stations.
