KQWB-FM 98.7 Fargo North Dakota 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, MN, 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.
