Y96 Energy FM offered an unfocused Rhythmic-leaning Adult Contemporary playlist, mixed with an Adult Contemporary presentation. The station apparently tried to capture the audience targeted by crosstown WMGI “100.7 Mix-FM” when it was a Dance-oriented station Mainstream CHR during the mid-90’s. According to indianaradio.net, the station was born 10 days prior to the date of this aircheck, and host Bill Cain was also the station’s Program Director.
This is a sample of one of the best CHR stations I’ve personally ever heard. While not as adventurous musically as it had been five years earlier, WMGI still played multiple gold selections from the late 80’s and early 90’s per hour – highly unusual for any station programming this format.
Recorded 19 years ago this month, this is a sample of Terre Haute’s longtime Mainstream CHR. Compared to its approach from two years prior, the station sounded much more like what one would expect to hear from a small Midwestern market. WMGI maintained this approach three years later.
During the mid-90’s, 100.7 Mix-FM was a unique small market CHR, offering a surprisingly dance-music-friendly format. This aircheck was recorded 18 years ago today.
