only new commercial-band construction permit issued in Alabama in
2008. George S Flinn, Jr., who operates several Memphis
stations, is the listed owner. The station is reported to be
in a LMA with an unknown party.
station was reported on air August 30th, 2010, with only basic
ID. The station may be in a testing or stunting phase.
Reports are that the ID was mispronouncing the city of license early
on. It's "Saint Floor-een" not "Saint Flor-ee-an". That
issue was fixed a few days after launch. The musical debut was
adult album alternative, which played through all of September and
most of October. Towards Halloween the station was reported
playing a loop of Alan Jackson's "Gone Country", but that was soon
switched off with Herman's Hermits' "Henry VIII". Later on a
MashMaticians song was looped before going back to the country
song. Later, the song loop included a larger selection of KISS
songs, followed by a robot voice countdown. At zero, a brief
blurb announcing a new station for the Shoals was read in a really
bad Casey Kasem impersonation, who slammed the other pop music
station in town before going into the MashMaticians song from
earlier ("Like a G6"). For Thanksgiving 2015, the station
plans to go all-Christmas, but only for the 48 hours of Thanksgiving
and Black Friday.
