Other Information:
590 was WDLP, a top 40 station, from the late 50's until sometime in the 70's. The station later became a sister station to 98.5 and got the WGNE calls, which were formerly on another local frequency. In the early 90's, the station aired a new age sound for a time, calling itself "The Breeze". (At that time, it was an AM companion of a class A FM in Mexico Beach.) Later became a Paxson station, and airs a satellite fed nostalgia format with call letter WDIZ AM (oddly, WDIZ FM is in Orlando).
