97.9 The Loop – Rockin’ Chicago For More Than 35 Years!


Way back in 1977, rock music found a new home on Chicago’s radio dial, as 97.9 The Loop (WLUP-FM) was officially born!

Over the years, 97.9 The Loop has become nationally-known, thanks to its involvement in the Disco Demolition in 1979, and thanks to legendary personalities like Steve Dahl, Garry Meier, and Jonathon Brandmeier. In addtion to the Disco Demolition, and the legendary radio jocks, 97.9 The Loop is also known for its Loop Rock Girl, a tradition that began in the late 1970s with the beautiful Lorelei.
