Subject: gone radio stations from the 80's

Anybody remember great radio stations you grew up on that don't exist today? I can remember WHTT here in Boston, B104 in Baltimore, and "Hot Hits 98" in Philly. Some stations are still with us, but they ain't what they used to be - ex. Z-100 in New York and Y-100 in Ft. Lauderdale.

KMET - Los Angeles, as a rock station dubbed "The Mighty Met" or "K-METal (in the 80's)". It's now KTWV 94.7 "The Wave," all jazz, new age and easy listening alternative now.

Also gone from the radio airwaves, but now LIVE on the 'net KNAC was THE station for headbangers in the late 80's and early 90's.

93Q KKBQ in Houston was a great 80's station. I could listen all day and never want to change the station. I believe it started up in 1980 or so. You said you were from Boston so I'll throw in that the Morning Show (Q ZOO) host was John Lander. The same one at Bostons Mix 98.5. It is a country station now, and has been for 7 years.

Subject: CA: 93.1 KXGO Arcata-Eureka

From a small Northwestern California market... But it boasted 100,000 watts. When it switched from and oldies format (XGO = "extra gold") to Top 40 in late-`84, it brought Humboldt and Del Norte Counties into the `80s. Favorite jocks: Harry Wolfe, Dancin' Danny Starr, The Professor and Jockey John (a personal friend). KXGO abruptly left the air in late `90 and re-emerged as a "classic rock" station in mid-`91. Yeah, KXGO sucks now. But I love to go back and listen to the tapes I recorded from it from `85-`88.

Anyone else from N. Cali remember?
