It was in 1987, the same year Art Modell and Al Lerner sold the station to Tom Embrescia, Tom Wilson and Larry Pollock. Sue Wilson soon came aboard as Program Director.
BTW, I've been listening to 102 lately and I've been hearing more 2000's and today songs, even 1990's. No 1980's and even '70s unless I've been listening at the wrong times. They are sounding more and more like what Q104 was a few years back.
I noticed that on Saturday, too. I heard songs all from about 1997 to currents. I also heard Rhianna's 'We Found Love' twice less than 3 hours apart. Can't they add more songs to their playlist so there isn't so much repetition? Also, I'm curious to know just how many songs are being played on both WDOK and WQAL.
