- The WKAC calls
stand for Ken A. Casey, owner. He put the station on the air
(as Limestone Broadcasting) in August of 1964 as a 1 kW daytimer,
with studios and transmitter where they are today! The
original transmitter was an RCA BTA-1R1. The station got a
permit to raise power to 5 kW in 1968.
The station was Top 40 until 1976, when it switched to country. That
lasted until 1994. Presently has a 70's centered oldies format
during the day, and in the 2000s picked up evening programming from
4 pm to 7 pm with Spanish Christian programming as "Radio
Alabanzas". That was gone by late 2011, and the station is
once again straight-up oldies.
