Just a reminder in the OP I said "This thread is dedicated to the DJs and bands who helped me get through way before there was an autism diagnosis or wrong planet".

One way the airchecks I posted are not literal is I did not listen to a lot of those DJs because there was no streaming and thus no way if they were on a radio station in another city or the UK for me to hear them.

Yes, I liked the song. From what I have seen are not that many airchecks around for 90s alt-rock stations. At some point later I will take a harder look for them and post some.

Some sad news
Dusty Street Dies: Outspoken Rock DJ For SiriusXM, KROQ Was 77

Quote:
Dusty Frances Street, one of the first female disc jockeys on the West Coast, died Saturday in Eugene, Ore. She was 77.

She was most recently the host of SiriusXM Deep Tracks, but is best known for her time working at KROQ-FM, known as K-Rock. The station became a force in punk and new wave music in the late ’70s into the 1980s.

“We have lost one of our own. Dusty Street has passed away after 77 joyous trips around the sun. And yes, Dusty Street was her real name,” SiriusXM Deep Tracks, Street’s most recent employer, shared Sunday in a Facebook post.

“Dusty was one of the first female rock jocks on the West Coast, working at KMPX and KSAN in San Francisco from 1967 through 1978 before heading to Los Angeles, where she held court in the evenings from 1979 through 1996 on KROQ. … We are heartbroken, Fly Low Dear Friend and Avoid the Radar.”

After some time at smaller stations, Street joined KROQ in 1978. She briefly left KROQ in 1980 and spent time at local rock stations KLOS and KWST, before returning to anchor KROQ’s evening programming from 1981 to 1989.

Street departed KROQ in 1989, claiming that she was a “renegade” to the increasingly tightened programming demanded. She also was a vehement opponent of the Parents Music Resoure Center, which was then attempting to impose a ratings system on music recordings.

She landed on her feet in Cleveland at the Rock Hall of Fame, joining upstart SIriusXM on its fifth floor studios.

Veteran KLOS DJ Geno Michellini posted on Facebook regarding Street’s death.

“I have been in Eugene the last two days at Dusty Street’s bedside. The numerous afflictions that she has been so indomitably fighting these last years finally caught up to her. I am writing with a broken heart to say that Dusty left us tonight,” Michellini wrote. “She died peacefully, quietly and surrounded by love in a beautifully serene location overlooking the most beautiful lake you could ever want. As befitting the queen that she was.

I get trippy and eclectic with this progressive rock format aircheck. The time and place should tell you all you need to know. Also a singer who has been in the news lately is played.

I bought my baby a red radio
He played it all day, a go-go a go-go
He liked to dance to it, down in the streets
He said he loved me, but he loved the beat
