History

WBLM signed on the air in 1973 on 107.5 MHz. It played so-called Beautiful Music (elevator music) from 6 AM to 6 PM and free-form progressive rock from 6 PM to 6 AM. By later that year, WBLM was a full time progressive rocker. In 1979, it modified its format to main stream album oriented rock, after being severely beaten in the ratings by what at the time was a new 3000 watt album rock station, 100.9-WLOB-FM. In February 1990 it switched frequencies with 102.9 WTHT. 102.9 was previously beautiful music station WGAN-FM from 1966 until 1985. Prior to that 102.9 was a different WLOB-FM (The 107.5 frequency is now WFNK, the WTHT calls are currently on 99.9.)
