History

In the early to mid-1980s, 106.5 was one of many "Hot Hits" CHR/Top 40 stations throughout the country consulted by programmer Mike Joseph. WMAR-FM Hot Hits 106 was the main competitor to Baltimore's other CHR, B-104. When the station was sold, it retained the Hot Hits format, but its call letters changed to WMKR-FM and its name became "Hot Hits K-106." The station was sold once again to Capitol Broadcasting in 1986. Capitol decided to change the format to AC and the name to "Mix 106.5." K-106 signed off by playing "Broken Wings" and then the jingles for each of its DJs. Mix 106.5 was introduced, and the call letters were changed to WWMX. Initially, Mix played the best mix of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. For years, many (including the local press at times) mistakenly thought the calls were "WMIX," leading the station to insert quick "W-Mix," with the word "Mix" spoken, identifiers between commercials. These were not legal station identifications, as 106.5 still identified itself as "WWMX-Baltimore" at the top of the hour, but they allowed the station to claim listeners who mistakenly identified 106.5 as "WMIX" in their diaries. Hot Hits was a radio format created by consultant Mike Joseph in 1980. ...


Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, WWMX strictly adhered to the standards of Adult Contemporary radio stations, limiting its playlist to pop music that excluded hip hop and alternative (other than adult alternative). But in the 2000s, WWMX expanded its format, playing some hip hop, and classic hard rock. Many urban contemporary songs that have charted high on the pop charts have been played on WWMX. Adult album alternative (also Adult Alternative, AAA or Triple-A) is a radio format which has a broader, more diverse playlist than most formats and tends to appeal more to adults than to teenagers. ... The term urban contemporary was coined by the late New York DJ Frankie Crocker in the mid 1970s. ...
