Morning Radio

During the '80s and '90s, Morning Radio was dominated by personality DJs -- jocks that were more important for their on-air personality than what music they played. Since their shows emphasized personality over records, perhaps it was inevitable that they would release their own records spotlighting their humor -- the prank phone calls, skits, jingles, and song parodies that made up their show. These records began appearing in the '90s, and usually were popular within local markets, where the DJs had loyal followings.
