History

With album-oriented rock declining in popularity, WROQ became a CHR station called Q-95 in 1984. Late in the 1980s, WROQ evolved into Rock 40. In 1990, after stunting with repeated airplay of "Shock The Monkey" by Peter Gabriel, the station returned to CHR as WZZG Gorilla Radio Z-95.1.[1]Later in the year, WZZG became WGKL-FM "Kool 95.1", an oldies station emphasizing 50s music more than Magic 96.1. [2],In October 1991, WGKL stunted with a different format each day, using mostly satellite formats from SMN, and one day even doing all-comedy, before becoming WAQQ "95-Double-Q", a CHR station with an modern rock emphasis. Pure CHR was one of the "choices" listeners were to vote on, but the eventual choice was "none of the above". In 1994, along with a name change to WEDJ "95.1 The Edge", the station moved even closer to modern rock. The switch to the current name, letters and format was made in 1996.[2] Album-oriented rock (sometimes referred to as Adult-oriented rock or as West Coast Rock), abbreviated AOR and originally called album-oriented radio, was originally an American FM radio format focusing on album tracks by rock artists. ...
