History

WJR-FM/California Radio

On June 1, 1948, the station signed on as WJR-FM, simulcasting WJR-AM. Around 1970 the station adopted the "Solid Gold" automated format from Drake-Chenault, which played oldies from the 50's and early 60's with a sprinkling of current hits. For a time, WJR-FM used the on-air moniker "California Radio" with this format. By 1973, however, the station had reverted back to the beautiful music format, with which it was quite successful for a time.

Beautiful music (sometimes abbreviated as BM / EZ) is a mostly-instrumental music format that was prominent in American radio from the 1960s through the 1980s. ...


Hot Hits WHYT

In August 1982, WJR-FM changed its call letters to WHYT, reportedly in a move to help the station distinguish itself better from WJR-AM. Initial word was that the format would remain beautiful music and that the "HYT" stood for "height," as in "the height of beautiful music," but this turned out to be a smokescreen. "HYT" actually stood for "Hit," and WJR-FM was readying a format change to Top 40. On September 15, 1982, at 5 p.m., WHYT signed off the beautiful music for good with "Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra, followed by the first song of the new format, "You Dropped a Bomb On Me" by The Gap Band. Year 1982 (MCMLXXXII) was a common year starting on Friday (link displays the 1982 Gregorian calendar). ... Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ...

The Gap Band are an American R&B, funk and soul music group who rose to fame during the 1970s and 1980s with their heavily-charged dance anthems and their sentimental and ethereal love songs. ...


WHYT initially used consultant Mike Joseph's "Hot Hits" format, a fast-moving, jingle-intensive format that featured a tight rotation of 50 current hits (no recurrents or oldies). The station's on-air name was "96 NOW" (coincidentally, the same slogan used by Chicago's WBBM-FM, a "Hot Hits" station on the same 96.3 frequency). "96 NOW" made the top 10 in its first ratings book in the fall of 1982. By the end of 1983, though, the ratings had cooled off somewhat, and WHYT had dropped the Mike Joseph formatics (though they continued to use the slogan "Hot Hits" on the air through 1986) and begun to play recurrent and gold titles. Nevertheless, WHYT continued to be consistently a top ten-rated station through much of the rest of the decade. Hot Hits was a radio format created by consultant Mike Joseph in 1980. ...

For much of the 1980s, WHYT was Detroit's local affiliate for Casey Kasem's American Top 40. Legendary personality Joey Reynolds, last heard from in Detroit radio in 1966 at WXYZ-AM 1270, hosted WHYT's morning show for a time in 1984. Through the '80s the station adopted several names such as "96 Hit FM", "Hitradio 96", "Power 96", and, by 1989, simply "96.3 FM". Casey Kasem in 1989 Casey Kasem (born Kemal Amin Kasem on April 27, 1932, in Detroit, Michigan, USA, of Palestinian and Lebanese heritage) is an American radio personality and voice actor. ...

Joey Reynolds is the pseudonym for Joey Pinto, the host of the national radio program, The Joey Reynolds Show via the WOR Radio Network. ...


WHYT's major competitors from the mid-1980s through the early 1990s were Z95.5 and 99.5 The Fox, as well as urban-contemporary powerhouse WJLB-FM. The station's peak of popularity came during its days as "96.3 FM" from roughly 1989 to 1991, when the station moved its music mix toward rhythmic CHR (while not totally abandoning mainstream pop and rock), frequently racked up top five Arbitron ratings 12+, and was one of the top stations in the 12-24 age demographics (often neck-and-neck with WJLB). Michael J. Fox was a popular draw in the mornings. In 1991, however, the debut of 89x, as well as Fox's departure, took substantial market share away from WHYT as teens and young adults flocked to the "cutting edge" modern rock format of 89X.

In 1992, the station delved even farther into rhythmic CHR territory, becoming known as "96.3 Jamz." WHYT eliminated most of the mainstream pop and rock from its playlist and began to focus almost exclusively on hip-hop, R&B and dance hits as well as some dance remixes of mainstream hits. Ratings with the "Churban" approach were decent, especially after WDFX went under at the end of 1992 due to bankruptcy (changing into the ill-fated WOWF "Wow-FM" and later country WYCD), but advertising revenue was not.

The Planet

With the emergence of alternative rock in 1994 the station called itself "The Planet 96.3" and began adding alternative rock to its playlist. For a time, this created an interesting music mix in which Madonna, 2 Unlimited, Real McCoy and Ace of Base were played alongside Nirvana, Soundgarden and the Cranberries. The station had evolved completely to alternative by 1995. After completing a deal with a college radio station in Plattsburgh, New York, the station's calls were switched to WPLT to match the "Planet" moniker in 1997. As "Planet 96.3," the station played a number of local Detroit acts that never quite achieved national stardom, such as the Suicide Machines and Charm Farm, as well as some very non-mainstream music like "Billy Ray" by Opposite Day (a #1 request on the station for a time in 1995) and "Near The Black Forest" by Vanessa Daou. With the call letter change to WPLT, however, the station tweaked its format to more of a Modern Adult Contemporary sound to distinguish it more from competing alternative-rock station CIMX (and, later in 1997, WXDG).

Over the Labor Day weekend of 1999, the station stunted by playing "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" by R.E.M., and then debuted "Alternative Classics", an attempt to convert the station's popular '80s "Flashback" shows into a full-time format by combining '80s new wave and punk with more recent (but non-current) '90s rock. Artists featured included U2, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Go-Go's, Peter Gabriel, Erasure, and Echo & The Bunnymen. The change failed to raise ratings, and within a year WPLT had begun to re-add current music into its rotation (such as "Smooth" by Santana and Rob Thomas) in the guise of "Future Alternative Classics." In response to continued low ratings the station changed its calls to WDVD in 2001, with its music gradually shifting in a more mainstream Hot Adult Contemporary direction.

WDVD Today

Today the station's playlist still has a heavy alternative rock base, although WDVD also plays Aerosmith and pop artists such as Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera. In 2006 the station attempted to freshen its presentation by dumping many of the pre-1990s titles from its playlist, adding jingles, and re-positioning itself as Today's Best Hits Without the Rap (referring to heavily rhythmic CHR WKQI). In 2007, the station added even more variety with newer pop songs similar to those played on WKQI, including "Say It Right" by Nelly Furtado, "The Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani, and "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie, though the only hip-hop artists the station plays are those who cross over to the Hot AC charts, such as OutKast and Gnarls Barkley.

On June 12, 2007, WDVD was taken over by Citadel Broadcasting. According to the Citadel page [2], Citadel considers WDVD an adult-leaning Top 40 station without rap.
