Kentucky Oldies Station Goes WAKY

W&B BROADCASTING Oldies WASE (KOOL 103.5)/RADCLIFF-ELIZABETHTOWN, KY changes its calls and slogan to WAKY, echoing LOUISVILLE's legendary Top 40 station of the 1960s. The station, which made the change at 5p FRIDAY after a stunt suggesting a switch to Country, rimshots LOUISVILLE from the south.
The first song on the new WAKY was the same as the song played over and over to launch the original WAKY-A in 1958, SHEB WOOLEY's "PURPLE PEOPLE EATER," this time introduced by former WAKY PD and host JOHNNY RANDOLPH.
