WXLY has also been known as "Oldies 102.5."


Y102.5 featured an Oldies format up until 2005, when it shifted to 70s based Classic Hits in March 2005, even including some 80s AC songs. The new slogan was "The Greatest Hits of All Time", however the station still had an Oldies feel to it. The evolution was taken a step further in late 2006 when the station adopted the slogan 'Music to Make You Feel Good', and unveiled a new, upbeat presentation with a new voice talent, new jingles, and a pastel-colored website. The logo was altered to give it a more contemporary feel. Morning host Leo Wyndham was cut along with mid-day host Kain Cameron (now heard on Sunny 96.9). Alison Keller, who co-hosted the 'Y-Wake Up Morning Show' along with Leo, remains and is heard from 8:30AM-2:00PM weekdays on the station. The syndicated morning show 'Murphy, Sam, and Jodi' replaced the local 'Y-Wake Up Morning Show.' The music spans roughly 1964 to 1985, with the focus being on the 1970s. However, music from the late 1980s, 1990s and even early 2000s can now be heard on the station sporadically. The format is now what is considered 'Gold AC.'

History

In the early 80s, WKTM played album-oriented rock. The switch to the WXLY letters and Y-102 name was made when the station switched to country music. Later in the 80s, the station played classic hits, which was an expanded version of the oldies format similar to what oldies stations are doing in 2007, only with more '50s music. The name of the format changed, but WXLY has played a style of oldies ever since. 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. ...
