    Seems to me that WHRL was Smooth Jazz by this time.

    How about 1965?

    89.1-WVCR-College
    91.5-WRPI-College
    90.3-WAMC-Classical, Talk in Mono
    91.5-WRPI-College/Progressive
    92.3-WFLY-Classical
    99.5-WGFM-WGY Simulcast/MOR
    (That's it, in '65, WROW-FM, WWOM, WHRL, and WDKC weren't on yet!!)

    590-WROW-Beautiful
    810-WGY-Full Service MOR/Bill Edwardsen
    980-WTRY-Top 40
    1240-WSNY-MOR
    1330-WHAZ-College (RPI)
    1400-WABY-MOR
    1460-WOKO-Country? MOR? (Can't recall)
    1540-WPTR-Top 40

    Actually WHRL was still elevator, in 1985. In 1987, they made a short lived attempt at A/C, to go after WKLI, and than flipped to New Age/Smooth Jazz, in 1988.

    Don\'t forget 101.9-WJIV, which hadn\'t opened the bible, yet. They were some type of elevator/MOR format, in those days.

    Help, please... I wasn't in the area yet in '68.

    Where was WXKW located, when did it go away, and why? Was it maybe a daytimer? (I'd think with WWRL in NYC on the same frequency, it couldn't have had much night power, if any, and nighttime flea power was much less common then, right?)
