The year 1985 in radio involved some significant events.

Events[edit]

  • January 1 – CKLW Windsor, Ontario adopts the Music of Your Life format.
  • February – A fire in downtown Clinton, Iowa destroys the studios for KSAY (96.1 FM) and KROS-AM (1340 AM), knocking both stations off the air for several days. When the station returned to the air in a new studio, the first program was a two-hour show devoted to the fire and volunteers that helped get KROS-KSAY back on the air.
  • March 28 – A Roger Waters concert is broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall. It is the first time that holophonics is used for a live radio broadcast.
  • The year brings other significant changes in Detroit radio, as WDRQ flips from urban contemporary to soft AC as WLTI, and WCLS flips from AC to rock-based Top 40 as WDTX.
