History

WFUN

This station was once WFUN-AM, a legendary Top 40 station that competed with WQAM. Originally, the station was located at 800 on the AM dial, and was a daytime-only operation. In the late 1950s, the station migrated down to 790, and went full-time. The 790 dial position was a moderately directional signal, as there was already a 790 in Havana, Cuba, and another in central Florida (Leesburg-Eustis). Despite coverage limitations, especially to the southwest (in the Florida Keys, toward Havana), WFUN competed vigorously with WQAM throughout the '60s, and even won some of the ratings sweeps. During the early '70s, pop music showed up first on FM at WMYQ, and then on Y-100, and the field of top 40 stations (including WQAM and even WINZ for a brief time) became crowded; ultimately many listeners moved to FM for music, and consequently WFUN abandoned their top 40 format. WFUN was used by one of its disc jockeys to create the revolutionary and hybrid Boss Radio broadcasting sound of Swinging Radio England from the coast of southern England during 1966. For a short time in 1965 Morton 'Doc' Downey was a DJ on this Miami legend station. WQAM is a South Florida radio station. ... This article is about the Cuban city. ...

Swinging Radio England (SRE) was a top 40 offshore commercial station billed as the Worlds Most Powerful that operated briefly from 3 May to 13 November of 1966 from a ship anchored in the North Sea, three and a half miles off Frinton-on-Sea, Essex, England. ...

WFUN was the home of several D.J.s who became famous on both sides of the Atlantic in 1966. They included Ron O'Quinn and Larry Dean. The format of WFUN in Miami was used in part by Ron O'Quinn as the foundation for the hybrid mix of sounds that were heard over the 50,000 watts offshore pirate radio station Swinging Radio England between May and November 1966.

After WFUN

The station subsequently became WNWS-AM with a news/talk format. Popular talk show host Tom Leykis was heard in the early 1980's. It changed back to music and became WMRZ-AM on November 28, 1990. The WAXY callsign was re-birthed after a short time off the air. It was originally on the FM dial at 105.9FM. It became WAXY-AM on October 12, 1994, initially with a format of brokered programs. In telecommunications, frequency modulation (FM) conveys information over a carrier wave by varying its frequency. ...

Flickr: WAXY. (1060 words)
"Waxy not only has some of the most moving photos on Flickr, but he is a beautiful human being.
What excites me about his photography is his unique vision, taking seemingly ordinary objects that most of us would ignore, whether it's a playground toy an old bicycle or a post-it note, and gives them a life of their own.
"Waxy is an incredible photographer, especially when it comes to movement.
