Owner:
Blakeney Communications
History:
This station appears to date back to 1967, spawned from AM 950 WHSY.  Under the WHSY-FM calls, the station was known as Y-104 and had a rock format.  Charlie Holt sold the station in 1994 to Blakeney Communications, who flipped it to a more classic-leaning rock format in April of 1995.
