History

92.1 started broadcasting in 1984 as WPUF on 92.7 MHz. These calls were never actually used on-air, however. In July, 1985, the station changed calls to WZZR and became a top 40 radio station known as "Lazer 93". It had stiff competition from legendary top 40 station WRVQ. Lazer 93 never caught on in the Richmond market, mostly because of it's weak signal. In 1987, management changed the calls to WCDX and flipped the station to "Power 93", which was a top 40 format with heavy amounts of hip hop and R&B. By the early 90's, all non-urban music was gone. Even with a weak signal, 92.7 was a very successful station in the Richmond market. 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


In 1996, a series of events occurred that caused WDYL which was on 92.1 to move to a new frequency on 105.7, and WCDX moved to the better 92.1 frequency. The 92.7 frequency was deleted to permit WUVA, a station on 92.7 in Charlottesville, Virginia, to increase its power. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...

WCDX remained the only Urban station in Richmond until 2001, when WBTJ flipped from oldies to urban as "106.5 the Beat".

WDYL also was home to several sports teams, such as VCU basketball, VMI football, Virginia Tech football and basketball, and the Richmond Renegades pro hockey team.
In a complicated series of events, WDYL-FM (which was on 92.1 at the time), moved to 105.7 in late 1995 to allow a station in Mechanicsville, (WCDX 92.7) to move closer to the city with more power on 92.1.
The 101.1 frequency was allotted to Chester, VA (the former city of license of 92.1) and began with a smooth jazz format.
