WYOO-AM 980 Minneapolis MN New YOO Jingle 1972

In late 1972, WYOO was the “new” station on Twin Cities radio dials.  Specifically, the “New YOO.”  To reinforce their image,  they cut a singing jingle which aired frequently.  I loved to aircheck this station, which is interesting because their format was Oldies.  I was only 8 years old at the time, so I didn’t know any of the music that WYOO played!  Must have been the jocks like “Big” Bob Chase, “Tall” Robert Hall, “Sweet Michael” O’Shea, Doug MacKinnon, and Tommy Graham. 

This jingle starts out with “There’s a New YOO swingin’ in the Twin Cities everyday.  A New YOO, Double-U-Y-O-O, New Yoo.”  I wasn’t able to get my tape recorder turned on quick enough, so the beginning is clipped slightly.  I recorded this from Apple Valley, MN, using a Spartan/Atlantic unit and Audio Magnetics 60 minute “bag” cassette.

    They liked the sound of that and “U100” was born, only later realizing the coincidence of the “WYOO” call letters and the new branding of “U100”. The new U100 quickly became the topic of conversation throughout the area with its rowdy, outrageous mix of Top 40 and hard rock.
