How's the Signal?
Signal is very good
Jefferson and Shelby counties. Can be received quite well over almost all
of central Alabama thanks to the "tall tower", lots of power and a good
centralized location. Strong signal in Jasper, Tuscaloosa, Columbus, Cullman,
Oneonta, Decatur, Hamilton and Fayette. Weakest in the metro area south
of Red Mtn and east of downtown. Station's massive signal is listenable
as far away as Anniston, Gadsden, Huntsville, Florence, Tupelo, Aberdeen,
Selma and more.

How's it sound?
The sound quality of this station is much
better than it used to be. Certainly better than WZZK!
Originally this was
a little station in Jasper. The calls were WWWB, "3 WB". They switched
back and forth between country and MoR. Then the station was Cool 102.5,
with an oldies format. Later became WZBQ, Z-102 with a CHR format. WZBQ
moved to 94.1, a station licensed to Carrollton, which serves both Tuscaloosa
and Columbus, MS. The calls now are WOWC (Hence WOW Country) and primarily
serves Birmingham. Wow country ended in early October. It's now "Dixie
102.5 Country" with the same musical format. The calls have also changed
