History

1160 was originally started in 1924 as WJJD. The station offered general entertainment programming before going through serveral music format changes. Plough Broadcasting bought WJJD in 1953. Before 1980, the station broadcast only during the day. In 1980 it began 24-hour operations. 1924 (MCMXXIV) was a leap year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ...

In the late '50s and early '60s WJJD was a top 40 (popular music) station. At first it had no serious competition for the teenage rock 'n' roll audience. After WLS switched to the top 40 format in 1960, WJJD couldn't compete: WLS had a 50,000 watt clear channel signal vs. WJJD's 5,000 watts; WLS was on 24 hours a day, while WJJD signed off at midnight; and WLS had a better position on the AM radio dial (890) than WJJD (1160).


In the 1970s, WJJD was a country music station, competing against WMAQ. WJJD's co-owned FM station WJEZ also played the same country music format. In 1982 WJJD dropped country music and adopted a syndicated adult standards format known as "Music Of Your Life". This format featured artists like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey, Patti Page, The Four Aces, Mills Brothers, Perry Como, Glenn Miller, Sammy Davis Jr., Pat Boone, Jack Jones, The McGuire Sisters, Nat King Cole, and Artie Shaw. The format also featured a few songs by baby boomer artists like Elvis Presley, The Carpenters, Tony Orlando, etc. The 1970s decade refers to the years from 1970 to 1979, inclusive. ... country music, see Country music (disambiguation) In popular music, country music, also called country and western music or country-western, is an amalgam of popular musical forms developed in the Southern United States, with roots in traditional folk music, Celtic music, blues, gospel music, and old-time music that began...

CBS/Infinity was forced to sell 2 stations due to ownership limitations of no more than 5 of an AM or FM station, totally no more than 8. CBS sold their underperforming FM station WYSY to a Spanish group. WJJD kept evening sports programming but dropped talk to simulcast WJJD Oldies 104.3 in January of 1997. AM 820 was sold to Personal Achievement and flipped to infomercials. CBS/Infinity kept 1160 but dropped the WJJD call letters in April.

When Viacom and CBS merged in 1999, the company needed to sell one station in Chicago; WSCR 1160 was chosen. Although it was initially believed that WSCR's play-by-play teams and some sports shows would move to WMAQ 670, the new company instead decided to relocate the entire format. So, on August 1, 2000, the intellectual property of WSCR moved to AM 670, the dial position of WMAQ, and eliminated in the process. After a short period of simulcasting 93.1 WXRT as WXRT (AM) on 1160, Salem Communications acquired the frequency.

Salem relocated the intellectual property of WYLL 106.7 (now WPPN) to the 1160 frequency, eliminating the contemporary Christian music format in the process, to adopt an entirely "Christian Talk & Teaching" format. Before WYLL carried Christian programming, it was WTWV 106.7 "The Wave", WZRC "Z-Rock", and WYEN. At first, Salem wanted to return the WJJD call letters to 1160, but these call letters were taken, so the call letters WYLL made the move. Moving the format to 1160 cleared the Des Plaines-licensed 106.7 for a new format, and Salem chose to utilize their successful contemporary Christian music "Fish" format, creating WZFS 106.7 "The Fish". Since that time, Salem traded the 106.7 signal to Univision, which replaced "The Fish" with Spanish adult contemporary (now Spanish oldies) station "Pasion 106.7" WPPN.

Jill P. Ingram: "A Case for Credit: Isabella Whitney's 'Wyll and Testament' and the Mock Testament Tradition" (10110 words)
The speaker in Isabella Whitney's "Wyll and Testament" (1573) leaves to the Hospital of St. Mary of Bethlehem "many" people who talk "out of tune": her mock-testament provides London's asylum with the insane who are already patients there.
The paradox is double: her bequest fills, with a bounty of sickness and insanity, a hospital already full; and the lunatics are not hers to give.
As a mock testament, Whitney's "Wyll" belongs to the genre known as the "worthless bequest," a form with its origins in the Menippean confession.
