Memories of WWBH
From Brian Tolby; "The only thing I can offer is WWBH, around the early 90s, I either called them or read somewhere that they did "Easy Listening". But I never heard the station and I'm going on memory. Apparently not many people knew that 1550 in New Smyrna was even there. I also remember reading a Broadcasting Magazine "Call Letter Change" section from around the time Capital was closing on WCKS (guess that would be '85) that they intended on renaming it, originally, "WFSN",  which of course didn't go."
