History:
This station was put on the air in 1979 as WCRQ by former State Finance Director and gubernatorial candidate Sid McDonald (as Brindlee Broadcasting).  It ran 2 kW and had a country music format.  The station was bought for $650,000 by Williams Broadcasting Corporation in 1994 and the format flipped to adult contemporary.  Fun Media Group bought the station in 1997 for $492,500 and flipped the calls to WAFN (Arab FuN) and the format to oldies, which it's been ever since.
