How's it sound?
The sound quality of this station is not very good. The music, commercials and promos always sound over compressed; artifacting is blatently obvious all the time.  It's quite annoying to me. But then all Dick stations sound like crap. Seriously guys, I've gotten pirated music off the internet that sounded better.
107.7 FM: Has probably always been WENN, companion to WENN AM (then WAGG). They simulcast at one point. The format and calls remained until WENN was switched with 106 X, when 105.9 became WENN and 107.7 became The X.
