WIXX (101.1) – Green Bay, WI – 1/5/99 – Dan The Man

Recorded at one of the peak eras for pure pop music, this is a sample of Green Bay’s longtime Mainstream CHR outlet. Per Wikipedia, the station adopted this approach in February 1977 and is therefore regarded as a heritage station for its format. Many thanks to Blaine Thompson of Indianaradio.net for contributing this aircheck!

WKPO (Power 105-9) – Janesville, WI – 1/22/98

“We’re puttin’ down the beat, with less repeat” — Power 105-9 was essentially a Rhythmic AC with a wide playlist — making it a relatively unique sounding station for its era and region (Southern Wisconsin).

WXSS (103.7 Kiss-FM) – Milwaukee – 8/10/98

This is a sample of Milwaukee’s 103.7 Kiss-FM not long after its launch. The station represented one of the finest examples of Mainstream CHR I’ve ever heard, offering multiple hits from multiple contemporary genres, without any sort of “lean”. In addition, the duo of 1980′s style jingles and Mitch Craig voiceovers made this station almost one of a kind for its era.
