KLRZ (Pirate Radio Z100) – Larose, LA – 1/7/95

During the early to mid-90’s, many Top 40 stations in the United States leaned towards either Rhythmic music or towards Modern Rock. This is a sample of a station with the latter approach – recorded 19 years ago yesterday. According to Wikipedia, KLRZ actually targetted the New Orleans market during this time, with a goal of moving the transmitter closer to that area. However, Hurricane Katrina effectively ended those plans.  

WKTU (103.5 The New KTU) – Diane Pryor & WHTZ (Z100) – Billy Hammond – New York – 10/15/98

  Both recorded 15 years ago today, this is a sample of the two dominant CHR stations in the largest U.S. media market during the late 1990’s. WKTU offered what we now call a Rhythmic AC format, while Z100, true to its roots, aired a straight-ahead Mainstream CHR format.
