KKXL-FM 92.9 Grand Forks ND Rees Kirk 1983

It was the summer of 1983. A full-fledged CHR war was being waged in Grand Forks. No, not between XL93 and Magic 96. That happened about 5 years later. This was XL93 vs Y95 (KYTN.) Both stations were completely live and local. Back in these days, many markets under 50,000 population had at least one and often two Contemporary Hit Radio stations, battling it out for audience and revenue share.

This was recorded from my grandparents’ house at Michigan, North Dakota. Equipment used was a Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo portable unit, connected to a “fringe” area TV antenna. Source tape was a TDK D90.
