WOCL-FM 105.9 Orlando Florida Sweeper 1991

Here’s a quick sweeper used by Cool 105.9 back in 1991.  I wish I had more airchecks of this station.  Scott Sherwood was a brilliant Oldies programmer with an airstaff to match.  Unfortunately, I was only 27 years old at the time, so I didn’t yet appreciate the Oldies format as I do now.

This was recorded from my place, 6 miles south of Ocala.  Equipment used was a Realistic AM/FM/CD/Cassette portable stereo with Sony LN90 tape.  Since WOCL’s big signal from Orange City blanketed Marion County, only the built-in telescoping antenna was needed.

    Cool 105.9 was really a great Radio Station! During my vacations in de late 80’s it was my favorite station in Orlando.

    Hi Henry,

    Like many in Orlando, I hated to see Cool 105.9 drop Oldies and switch format. The jocks were great and so was the music. Especially when Chancellor owned them (up until the mid-1990s.)

    Bill Gable and later, Scott “Scooter” Sherwood on mornings @ Cool 105.9. Great entertainers, both of them!

    I loved Cool 105.9! And not just because I worked there. I was “Captain Dan” the airborne traffic reporter during the week and “Dan Rivers” spinning the oldies on the weekends. Good times.
