Roll in a promo. Fire up an original jingle
Put yourself in The Great 98 Control Room
It was September 8, 1973 and The Great 98 unleashed its listeners
and their home made rafts on the Potomac

Give a listen to our online radio station it’s
The biggest hits from the late 50s to early 80s.
You’ll recognize the Great 98 jingles,
promos and some familiar voices.
We have produced a special video version of
Life Is A Rock But WRC Rolled Me
It's almost 4 minutes of Great 98 jock photos,
behind the scenes pics and quick cuts of memories.
This tribute site is done as a labor of love by a couple of
middle-aged guys who used to work there.
It's also a tribute to those professionals
who helped make the station a success.
We hope this site will bring back some memories
to those who were lucky enough to
hear the station when it was on the air.
If you never heard The Great 98, prepare for an
education of not only the Top 40 format,
but learn about its MOR days, the NewsTalk era
and even the Disco phase.

This project was done as a labor of love and heard
years after its creation in the DC area on
Oldies 104 WXTR during their Big Daddies
of Washington Radio weekend in 1994.
This 52 minute collection was created in
1975 and updated in 1979.
The contents of this CD have been taken from
the original master tape and digitized!
The History of The Great 98
Truly one of Washington DC's last great Top 40 AM radio stations.
