Putting my abilities to beat a dead horse to the test, here are yet more Philadephia local TV commercials, this time for Philly radio stations. There's something ironic about radio stations advertising on TV, but I believe it's integral for a successful radion station. Here are some great ones, some for statioins still around, others for stations long put to rest.
The beautiful music format tried to make a comeback in teh market in the early 90s on 560 Am, WISH, sister station to B101-FM, a station which formerly held the format.
Speaking of B101, it was known as Easy 101 in its old format. Here it is now, (among some other TV station promos and commercials).
Here a young woman speaks the praises of Hot AC station Star 104.5. It is now alt-rock station Radio 104.5.
For you rockers out there, here are two spots for 94 WYSP, still a rock station today.
Here's a clip for WIOQ, which was then an AOR station, now a CHR.
After this format, it was an oldies station for a year or so, and a very good one, too.
Speaking of oldies (my favorite format), here are spots for WOGL Oldies 98, still on the air today...
...and WFIL, 560 AM. Today it's a Christian talk format.
"Rock on, Philly!"
