WIOQ (Q102) – Philadelphia – June 1996 – Chio (Part 2 of 2)

This is a sample of WIOQ during its Dance-leaning CHR days in the mid to late 90’s.  The station was a favorite among U.S. dance radio enthusiasts (such as yours truly) at this time. NOTE: The first half of this aircheck can be found HERE.  

WIOQ (Q102) – Philadelphia – 2/26/97 – Billy Hammond

“Q102, The Beat of Philadelphia” (102.1 WIOQ) on a Wednesday night during its Dance-leaning CHR days in the mid to late 90’s.  The station was a favorite among U.S. dance radio enthusiasts (such as yours truly) at this time.

It just seems like they were trying too hard to make the station sound “hip”, for lack of a better term.  Just the humble opinion of your Webmaster!

There also appears to be a segment recorded from the former KZZP 1310 AM.  I believe this was a simulcast of the FM for most/all of its existence.  However, this segment seems to imply that the programming was, at least at that moment, different on the two; can anyone clarify this? //bit.ly/gtt8T5 indicates that KZZP-AM became Adult Standards as KXAM on 2/19/90; the segment references Adult Stand...
