George Wilson was at WOKY and went to WRIT. New jingles, most of "the mighty 92" jocks went to
W-RIT. Terrell Metheny's 13-40 news was moved to :55 -same as WOKY. Lasted 4-5 months and Wilson was gone. His greatest quote "it's what between the songs that counts" per dj presentation.
In 1983, Milwaukee had a 4 way Top40 battle!
WKTI, HitRadio B-97, Z95 and HitRadio 1-double Oh-7 WRKR, which I consider, to this day, to be one of the best CHRs ever! Pat Martin programmed.
Minneapolis had a 4 way battle in '72 if I'm correct. Went to run tape on KDWB, WDGY, KSTP and U100. KDWB and KSTP no jingles,"Weegee" was dying and U100 had this big honkin' FM signal!
In Wisconsin, always loved WIFC vs WSPT. Both were good. WSPT had TM shotgun. WIFC an album rock sound, but Top40 and jingles, of course.
Eau Claire had WBIZ vs WEAQ. (EAQ was on 790 and was "79 Q" and BIZ was Z100.)
The tight sound of the Star stations: Koil Wife and Kisn were all excellent! "say it in 7 seconds or less."
Y100 vs 96X in Miami, in upper Michigan, Magic 97 vs Q107, K-Fire in Bismarck SMOKED 5 states! Rapid City:920-KKLS vs 1150-KIMM. 106KHQ vs 106-7thePeak in Northern Michigan, WGRD vs WLAV Grand Rapids and Toledo had WOHO WTTO and WTOD for years!
