Rock 103 WXZL Annapolis Maryland, 9 Ninety Minute Tapes from 1994


WXZL was a hard rock-progressive station in Annapolis that was taken over by WRNR. WRNR Owner Jake Einstein was the owner of WHFS back in the day. Too bad I didn't know about this station sooner, before WRNR took over. I have several tapes, 9 of them too be shared in this post. Most are in mono because the signal was so weak. But this was an awesome radio station. Long setlists and progressive in nature, leaning toward hard rock. As mentioned before, I taped these tapes, and always used either my Pioneer CT-F1000 3 head deck, or later with my Nakamichi CR1A 3 head deck. So they sound great. The fact most of these are in mono, really takes nothing away from the great music. Just elimintes the hissing due to the weak signal. Pretty cool station. Hope to hear some feedback on this post. Standy by soon for more WHFS, WGTB, and WRNR.

I remember that station being on the air for a short time prior to WHFS opening up in Annapolis. It was a great time for Radio.
but NOW as Shemekia Copeland sings in " Who Stole My Radio? "
Radio sucks! Thanks for your efforts in posting all of these good old radio broadcasts WXZL, WHFS, WGTB. Do you have any of the old U of MD radio station broadcasts. If you can please post them too. Maybe someone will donate a copy to for you to post for the greater public audio welfare. Keep on rockin'

Would it be possible to repost? Thanks for the great music - old WRNR/Rock 103 from the 90s is the best radio out there!

Thank you so much for reuploading! Really good stuff on these tapes and great FM sound, too - not too overly-processed the way so much radio sounds these days!

Camarillo Brillo said...

The sound is pretty good no doubt...

Here's a couple of links for all the WRNR/Rock 103 from 1994...this is about 35 tapes

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
