KQWB-FM 98.7 Fargo ND Overnights 1988

Q98FM was “Always Rockin” in the summer of 1988.  Back then, it was the only Rock station in the market.  Mark Nicholls was the program director.  I spoke to him a few times on the phone while I was doing nights at Sioux City’s KG95.

The audio quality of this aircheck is fair at best.  I grabbed this from Apple Valley, Minnesota, over 200 miles to the southeast.  Due to their short tower height, Q98FM wasn’t as strong as some of the other stations I was able to receive from this distance.  It’s a short clip, but it’s all I have. 

Reception was made using a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver, Winegard 10 element FM yagi antenna, Alliance U-100 Tenna Rotor, and Belden ultra low loss RG59 coaxial cable.  The recording was made to a Sears stereo cassette deck with a BASF 60 minute normal bias tape.
