History:
Started out as the FM companion to WOZK on 900 AM, in the late 60's.  Wikipedia says the station was country through much of the 70s.  It later hosted an adult standard format that lasted at least up until the mid-2000s; in the mean time it was simulcasting with the AM.  The station finally dropped the adult standards sometime in recent memory, as reports now say they're doing 70s & 80s classics as "Oldies 104.9".  The AM was reported off air in February 2015.  A month later, owner Julian "J.B." Brown passed, in March 2014.
