Here’s the familiar “From the Land of Zee Ninety-Nine” Legal ID sweeper that KEEZ used back when Paul Hedberg owned the station. It was also the era of the “You’re First With Z99” campaign. Since KDOG was now the #1 radio station in Mankato, KEEZ could no longer make that claim. They were still #1 in the region, however, since KDOG’s 740 watt signal could not compete with Z99’s 100,000 watts mounted high on KEYC-TV’s tower. So, KEEZ’s positioning thanked listeners for “making us first in southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa.”
Todd Tischer did either nights or overnights during this time. (Anyone know for sure which?) I caught this brief aircheck of him while doing a dial scan from my residence in Apple Valley. Equipment used was a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver, Winegard 10 element FM yagi antenna, Technics cassette deck, and BASF normal bias tape.
