Station History

95.1 originally signed on in 1949 as WTMA-FM, the sister to WTMA AM 1250. By the late 50s, WTMA-FM was simulcasting much of the AM's programming full-time, which was Top 40 by that point. Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ...

When the FCC started to limit simulcasts of AM and FM stations in the late 1960s, WTMA-FM became WPXI, with an automated Beautiful Music format. In 1975, WPXI changed to Urban Contemporary as "Super 95 Soul". Although it was still automated, it was noted as being one of the few commercial Urban FMs in South Carolina at the 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. ... The term urban contemporary was coined by the late New York DJ Frankie Crocker in the mid 1970s. ...

In 1981, WPXI dropped the Urban format as the station became WSSX, with a Top 40/AOR hybrid. Known as "The Rock n' Roll Station", the station went to #1 in the ratings within a year. By 1983, the station had transitioned to Mainstream Top 40 (now known as CHR) as "95SX", again going #1 on several occasions throughout the remainder of the 80s. CHR is a Habbo Hotel AU fansite with a online streaming radio station. ...

By 1993, WSSX's ratings had began to decline as the station shifted away from CHR to Hot Adult Contemporary as 95-Mix (later changed to Mix 95.1). This lasted until September, 1995 when the station returned to CHR and its 95SX handle.

The station is owned by Citadel Broadcasting.
