This station received its original construction permit in February of 2013.  A month later a minor modification permit was issued which moved the transmitter site approximately 1800 feet from the original site.  The station filed a license to cover in November of 2014 and began airing a wide-ranging variety format, including operas, classical music, old time radio (OTR) as well as other niche radio programming.  The station later added a website, which lists classic country as the only type of music they play as of January 2016.  That website eventually went defunct, and was replaced by another one proclaiming that their format was Gospel.  As of the winter of 2020, the station's website has it paired with Abbeville-area WESZ-LP, and lists formats of Jazz, Oldies and Gospel on weekends.  The stations appear to have the same format and schedule but not be simulcasting exactly.

The station was granted a Construction Permit to change frequencies to 93.7 MHz in July 2020, with the same power and antenna height as the previous facility, 83.7 watts at 107 feet HAAT.  In May 2022, the station was granted another modification, to increase height to 203 feet while lowering power to 23 watts.  The station filed a Silent STA request with the FCC in September 2022, citing the sale of the property the station was on and an inability to find a new location.
