WTRS-FM 102.3 Ocala FL Jeff Daniels 1991

In the early 1990s, 102 Proud Country WTRS was the big Country FM in North Central Florida.  This was the first station I worked for, after making the decision to pack up my 1978 Oldsmobile and move to Florida from Oregon. I picked Ocala as the place I wanted to settle, then pestered every program director and general manager in town for a job.  A few weeks later WTRS hired me to do 7PM-Midnight.

Jeff Kormendy aka “Jeff Daniels” was our morning host.  He had a good voice and lots of potential.  At WTRS, we were basically doing “New Country” a year before the format became recognized and cloned in markets all over the U.S.  Lots of current, upbeat music with loads of personality and phones.  It was a fun place to work!

This aircheck was made from my residence, 6 miles south of Ocala.  I used a Realistic AM/FM/CD/Cassette portable stereo and Sony LN90 tape.  No outdoor antenna was required.
