I Cant Speak for All Philadelphians: Power 99

14 Oct

The origin of this post was ‘Why is it called ‘Power House’. ‘Power House is Power 99’s annual summer concert/ jam that usually has the best names in the music inDUSTry. Power 99 is a Philadelphia radio station and is usually considered the number one station to listen to when you come to Philadelphia. (Shout out to Y100, B101 and WMMR)

If  Power 99 ever reads this…

-Please make a history and chronology of Power House. Shanks. There is no history about it.

Power 99 (WUSL 98.9) was a Country station at first. Did you know Q102 (another local station) had Power 99 on the ropes  and Power somehow got enough POWER to survive. Though both stations rivaled each other back in the day, one remained true, the other, changed DRASTICALLY.  Power 99 done came a long way.

Wiki has the whole deal. There is actually a nice history to tell.
