One of America’s heritage CHRs (the longest with the same calls/nickname according to Wikipedia) is Miami’s Y-100 (100.7 WHYI). At the peak of the boy-band/girl-band era, here’s a segment from the summer before the start of the new millennium. This features host Rich Rodriguez telling hopeful contest winners that he’s looking for caller #1007.
Recorded 17 years ago this month, this is a sample of Miami’s heritage Mainstream CHR (Y-100) on a Thursday night during live-to-air programming (titled “The House of Style”) from a local nightclub named Cafe Iguana Beach Place in Fort Lauderdale. Following the Y-100 aircheck is a sample of a classic dance-formatted pirate station that was operating in the area at the time, named “Rhythm 93.5”.
