- The WFMH calls
go back to at least 1950 on the 101.1 MHz
frequency. After that signal was bought out, WFMH migrated
over to 95.5 MHz.
MHz traces it origins to a construction permit with the WCOC calls
that never got on the air. It was re-applied for and signed on
in 1996 as WXXR-FM, licensed to Holly Pond but with studios on US-31
in Cullman. At the time it was oldies formatted, simulcasting
WXXR AM 1340 in Cullman. In 1998 the station picked up the
WFMH calls displaced from the above-mentioned 101.1 MHz
buyout. It retained the same satellite-fed country. In
2004 the station re-licensed from Holly Pond to Hackleburg and began
targeting the Hamilton area of northwest Alabama.
station was taken off the air due to the tornadoes that struck the
area in late April 2011, and returned to the air sometime later.
