Recorded 27 years ago today, here is a sample of longtime Phoenix morning show radio duo Tim Hattrick and Willy D. Loon — better known as Tim and Willy — in what may possibly have been their first day together on the air, two days before Christmas 1988. Tim mentions that Willy was the “musical genius behind Jonathon Brandmeier” — Brandmeier hosted mornings on CHR rival KZZP earlier in the 80’s. Includes a request from a listener for “Girl I Know It’s True” by Chilli Fanilli.
In July 1986, Beautiful Music-formatted KQYT “Quiet 95” flipped to Adult Contemporary as “KOY 95.5 FM”. The station eventually began to call itself “Y95” and evolved to Mainstream CHR. This is an unofficial composite of the station about 2 to 3 years after the initial change. With varying degrees of success, Y95 attempted various permutations of Mainstream CHR until September 2, 1993. On that day, it began stunting in preparation for a format change the following day.
