Jingle Reel From WMHI – Frederick (Circa 1973)

A lot of radio fans remember Frederick, Maryland’s high-energy Top 40 station, 14-ZYQ, later renamed Z-104.

It was a simulcast at AM 1370 and FM 103.9.

Fewer people remember its original identity, WMHI. The call letters were derived from the station’s owner, Musical Heights, Incorporated.

Its adult contemporary format was decidedly lower-key than the hot-rockin’ WZYQ that replaced it, as reflected in this assortment of jingles produced by Pepper Tanner.

WMHI-FM was licensed to Braddock Heights, a small town near Frederick…and it makes for a curious choice of lyrics.

You’ll hear two names mentioned in the jingles: Al Soper, who also worked at WINX-Rockville and WJMD-Bethesda…and Ed Klitch, who worked for several media outlets in Frederick and Washington Counties, including WFMD, WARK, and WHAG-TV, Channel 25.
