History

WPHH began broadcasting as country formatted WWCO-FM, owned by Merv Griffin. In the early 70s, the station changed call letters and rebranded as "Nashville, Connecticut, W-104. They took the call letters WIOF. In 1976, the station dropped country to become Adult Contemporary formatted "Magic 104." Lou Terri was the Program Director and midday host until his death in an automobile accident in 1989. Jack Carney, who was also the voice of WVIT Channel 30 at the time, hosted the afternoon show. Jim Scott did nights. Morning announcers included Bill CLeveland and Ray Petraca. In 1992, they rebranded as "Star 104", WYSR. In 1995, it flipped to modern rock/alternative outlet WMRQ "Radio 104". Personalities such as Dee Snider and Bubba The Love Sponge were morning men on the station at various points during the station's history. Due to struggling ratings, WMRQ was flipped to WPHH, Power 104.1, in September 2003. Rumor has it Power 104.1 may go a Spanish format as the ratings have not done much to hurt Hot 93.7's strong ratings in the market. Mervyn Edward Merv Griffin, Jr. ...
