CTS Extra 09: Y Max?

One of the more unique (and lesser known) formats out there is the Rock
Hits (or Mainstream Rock, or Rock 40) format. While the format isn't
heard in many places throughout the country, you can find it in great
abundance in the state of Pennsylvania, with 2 stations in the state
running the format. It is these 2 stations we are reviewing today for
our Kid's Corner CTS Extra. First, we will listen to the launch of, and
then an aircheck of WMQX (102.3) "Max 102" in Scranton, PA. This
station flipped from sports "The Sports Hub" in April with a very
unusual stunt, normal Pennsylvanians counting upward, which you will
hear in the first few minutes of the launch aircheck.. We will then
head a bit further south and east to Reading Pennsylvania to hear a
longstanding station in the format, WRFY (102.5) "Y102", which has
been in the format since the 1980s. As you listen, please take great
note of the similarities, but slight subtle differences between the
stations. On this CTS Extra, get ready to rock with the hits as we
ask, Y Max?
