History:
This station came on the air as WPBC by Plaquemines Broadcasting Company in 1966 as a daytimer with just 1 kW.  Calls changed to KAGY sometime in the late 60's or early 70's.  In the 80's it had a format mix of middle of the road music and country music.   Later was a long time home of "swamp pop", a sort of Louisiana-specific format of local music like zydeco.  It flipped to gospel music sometime around September 2015.
