B96 Year Review - 1983

Post by Disman00911 »

I am doing a series of how WBBM-FM B96 93.6 evolved from it's start of its Top 40 format in 1982 up to the year 2006, during the middle of its' hip hop-heavy rhythmic format.

1983 was B96’s first full-year as a Top 40 station and the station sounded much like it did the previous year. A lot of rock-based hits, many softer hits, and very little R&B or post-disco. 1983 was also the year WBBM-FM officially adopted the "B96" moniker, which is still used to this day, as it was previously known as "96 Now". Core artists include Billy Joel, Journey, Bryan Adams, Billy Idol, Phil Collins, Kenny Rogers, Culture Club, Daryl Hall & John Oates, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Duran Duran, Elton John, Laura Branigan, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Prince, Men at Work, Pat Benatar, Rick Springfield, Toto, The Police, etc.

Out of all the songs played on B96 in 1983, only a handful of them would be played as 80s flashbacks during the dance-heavy 1990s:
Duran Duran - Hungry Like a Wolf
Eddy Grant - Electric Avenue
Eurythmics, The - Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)
Madness - Our House
Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
Prince - 1999
Prince - Little Red Corvette
Shannon - Let the Music Play

Meanwhile, some notable songs from 1983 that were never played on B96 whey they originally came out yet would be played as 80s flashbacks during the dance-heavy 1990s:
Lime - Angel Eyes
My Mine - Hypnotic Tango

NOTE: The following R&R issues from 1983 are missing:
2/25, 4/22, 5/27, 7/08, 7/15, 7/22, 8/05, 8/12, 8/19, 8/26, 9/02, 9/09, 9/16
