History:
This station was put on the air in the summer of 1971 as WPCS (for the owners, Pensacola Christian College).  It started off with the full 100 kW, but on 89.3 MHz; it didn't move to 89.5 MHz until 1987.  The station has always carried the more conservative "sacred religious" music and talk programming.  The station is a parent to dozens of translators scattered all over the country, marketed as the "Rejoice Broadcasting Network".
