At the start of the 90’s, as mainstream pop music became much more fragmented, many formerly “Mainstream” CHRs chose to lean towards either Adult Contemporary or Rhythmic/Dance music. WPST, along with some of its other neighbors in the Philadelphia region like “Y102” WRFY Reading and WSTW Wilmington went in a Rock 40 direction. When was the last time a station ran an all-request show at 3am?
Recorded 18 years ago this month, here is a sample of Central New Jersey’s longtime Hot AC/Mainstream CHR, at its previous home on 97.5 FM. More information about the station can be found at Wikipedia.
