Happy Birthday To WHOM!
Did you know that 94.9 HOM is celebrating a birthday today? It was on this day, June 11th, back in 1958 that our station officially signed on the air. We found a proclamation signed by Gov. John Lynch acknowledging the station's 50th birthday back in 2008:
When the station originally signed on the air, it was known as WMTW-FM. In 1963, it was sold to Tonight Show host Jack Parr. It switched call letters to WHOM-FM in 1976. The oldest audio sample of the station we could find online happens to be from that year, courtesy of Mark Vieth and mostlyuppermidwestairchecks.com
