What’s New?

September 9, 2007

How does one pay tribute to such a great station as 99X? We try here, but as you may have noticed, this site isn’t updated much. That’s because our main focus is on our sister site, Airchexx.com.

Well, let me assure you that this WXLO tribute site isn’t forgotten. We have a number of projects going on, upgrades, etc., and when those are complete, we’ll be back here with some fresh 99X airchecks. When we do, the 99X tribute will continue with Matt @ BigAppleAirchecks in charge! Matt has the audio collection, and more importantly, he was THERE in New York during the heyday of this great station!

Meantime, be patient, and check out the various airchecks here, and at our sister site, www.airchexx.com. We’re sure you’ll agree, we have the largest collection of 99X ear candy on the web!

Lee Roberts, Saturday Morning on 99X – December 17, 1978

“99X…. Rockin the Apple in Stereo with a world of Odessey…”

The late 70s was a particularly good time for Lee Roberts, who was heard at 13 WAVZ New Haven, 96 TIC-FM Hartford AND 99X all in the same general time period!

Lee, IMHO, is an incredible talent whose delivery, while it didn’t particularly stand out like Bill Lee’s, was very smooth and polished. I don’t think I ever heard an on air mistake from Roberts.

That said, lets enjoy a bit of this Connecticut native on 99X from a few days before Christmas ‘78.
