80s flashback music played on b96 during the 1990s

Post by Disman00911 »

List of several flashback music from the 1970s or 1980s that was played on B96 during the Killer Bee/Party Radio/early Chicago’s Dance Beat days of the 1990s either in the mixes or on rotation based on several available airchecks. Note that the late 70s and early 80s songs were almost always disco or funk records and much of the music B96 actually played during the early-to-mid 80s was never played as flashbacks largely due to not fitting in B96's dance/rhythmic format in the 1990s.

The Retro Show
“The Retro Show” was a syndicated weekend program that showcased 1970s and 1980s music, largely focused on disco, R&B, and dance-based hits of the era. It was hosted by Gary Spears, then in his second stint with B96. “The Retro Show” began in 1993 and lasted well into 2000 though it is currently unknown how long the show actually lasted and how long B96 aired the show as it may had been dropped during its run.

Re: 80s flashback music played on b96 during the 1990s

Retromix
Retromix was a old-school based spinoff of the syndicated Hot Mix Radio Productions mixes, focusing on classic dance music from the 1970s and 1980s. The Retromix mixes were launched in 1993 but B96 didn't start airing them until 1996, when the station expanded the Lunch Party mix from one hour to four hours (rebranding as the At Work Dance Party) and playing two mixes per hour (eight mixes total). The first hour was focused on flashback-based music and B96 typically aired the Retromixes on this hour while the other three hours were focused on the then-current dance, pop and urban hits of the era. By 1998, B96 reverted back to just to just the one-hour Lunch Party and discontinued airing mixes on the 10am, 11am and 1pm hours, meaning that they no longer aired the Retromix sets. Below are several of the songs that may had been played on B96 during that time when they aired flashback mixes. They are based on the available Retromix CDs between 1993 and 1996. Post-1996 Retromix sets are not included here.
