WCUZ 101.3 & 1230 AM

Post by cckadlec » Sun Sep 20, 2020 11:13 am

While I believe I had seen it in the past, I spotted this sticker in the park in Grand Rapids and got curious of its time and origins.

The WCUZ calls were used from 1980 to 2000, paired with 1230 as a country station. I'm sure many people recall that (I really don't). Does anyone know what year or so this sticker is from as it's a pretty extensive time period? It remains in the park as it obviously has for a few decades now.

(Images don't work in the desktop version of Chrome apparently, so you can right click the broken image and open in a new tab to see it).

Most likely 1980s or very early 90s vintage. I believe 1230 flipped to talk radio around 1993. Before then, the same call letters and logo were used for both AM and FM (much like WOOD Radio prior to 105.7 becoming EZ 105.7).

Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

I believe sometime between 84 and 88. It looks familiar from my time there.

Looks like it's from the Pathfinder days, Late 80's.
