WJGS Survey-The First On ARSA

Looks like an in house survey. Or maybe a few copies in record stores too. Anyone know more? Near mint copy.

Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

WABX in Detroit was saying 99 1/2 for years until mid 80’s

WUPS used "98-and-a-half FM" well into the 90s.

I wish they would return to using that phrase!!!

It meshes very well with the KIIS jingle package the station recently resurrected.

"98-and-a-half FM! U-P-S...We de-liv-er the hits!" That was an iconic jingle sing as far as Northern MI radio lore is concerned. :)


C'mon 106.7 WLLZ (aka Fake Wheels) - please hire Mike Staff, Sheri Donovan, Carolyn Stone, or Dave Doran!!! Thanks in advance.

For the youngsters who don't remember, WJGS Houghton Lake (WUPS Harrison) and WHGR were founded by the Sparks family, and were coowned with WEXL and WOMC for many years, whose studios and transmitters were/are at 2201 Woodward Heights in Ferndale. It's current owner, Black Diamond Broadcasting, is largely coowned with The Lion's Den Restaurant in Waterford, and is based in Rochester Hills. The original WJGS transmitter location was on one of the WHGR 1290 towers in Prudenville, now gone and dismantled. It's huqe new 890 foot tower is just South of Houghton Lake.

I remember WJGS well. Really liked them a lot back then. 98 and a half was excellent and I also wish they'd return to that. Nice playlist btw...

I'll email Gary and ask where he found that. It's in such pristine shape, it looks like it was in a storage area to preserve documents like the Library of Congress or Smithsonian Museum or something.

From the fall of '82 Top 40 in general was a nice playlist.

Sadly, it didn't last as long as the sensational sixties.

by the end of '86, rap had virtually swallowed Top 40 whole.😣
