This is a sample of Friday night “Club 107.5” mixshow programming on Chicago’s heritage Urban Contemporary station, WGCI. It was hosted by Armando Rivera with mixes provided by Scott Smokin’ Silz – both of whom worked at the legendary WBMX (102.7) during the 1980’s. At this time, the station (or at least the Club 107.5 mixshow) employed an outstanding high-energy voice talent in Pat Garrett. More information about the history of WBMX (specifically, the “Hot Mix 5” of which Scott Smokin’ Silz was a member) can be found HERE.
For a few years in the mid to late 90’s, WKBZ-FM offered an Urban Contemporary format branded as Power 95.3. According to Wikipedia, a few months after this aircheck was recorded, ownership of the station was transferred to Grand Valley State University. Subsequently, it became a simulcast of another station owned by the institution.
WJKS has been a longtime representative of the Urban format in Wilmington, and surrounding areas that span Southern New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. This aircheck was recorded 15 years ago today, and voiced by the legendary Mitch Craig.
A couple of sweepers (including one voiced by the legendary Mitch Craig) from the short-lived V103.9 in Southern California. More information can be found on the Wikipedia pages of KRCD (the current call letters of the former KACE) and KCXX (the current call letters of the former KABE).
