History:
This station was put on the air in the early 60's by the owners of (then) WOWL 1240 in Florence, as WOWL-FM.  It started off as a local station with much less power than it has today.  In the mid-60's the station got a big bump in power and became WJOI-FM, at this time companion to WJOI 1340.  In the early 70's the station was acquired by the present owners, Big River Broadcasting, owned by the family of Sam Phillips of Sun Records fame.  The station received another boost in power, this time to the full 100,000 watts, in 1978.
