Approx 1/2 mile north
of Edwards Lake Rd. near Stonehenge subdivision.
How's the Signal?
Signal is very good
over almost all of Jefferson and Shelby counties. Can be received well
in Oneonta. Station is noticeable weaker than others in west and south
Ave North, Birmingham

How's it sound?
Despite occasional balance
problems and commercials that sound like the treble's been cranked up too
much, this station sounds excellent. One of Birmingham's better from a
sound quality standpoint.
Originally a small rimshot
station in Warrior, the calls were originally WLBI and the format was hot
adult contemporary. The transmitter was on a hill off Arkadelphia Road
west of Warrior, and the studios were there in a cramped trailer. The tower
is still there and may be a backup for the new one off Edwards Lake Road
near Roebuck. WLBI eventually entered the Birmingham market with it's tiny
6 kW signal as "Lite 98", featuring a mix of soft AC, jazz and contemporary
Christian music. Later became WBHK, playing black adult contemporary and
black oldies, and the transmitter was then moved into Birmingham.
