Alan Polasky (CORRECTED) owns a tribute website to the station, www.wfuntribute.com – “Fun 79”. There, he describes what led to WFUN’s final days as a Top 40 radio station:
“Top 40 on AM became more competitive, too, when WINZ briefly joined the fray. Ultimately many listeners moved to FM for music, and in 1976, WFUN was sold and became News/Talk WNWS and later middle-of-the-road station WMRZ, followed by WAXY which was brokered talk. Now “790 The Ticket” sports is the format of our former beloved station. “
Well, that was then. This aircheck is BEFORE then. Listen now to the sound of FUN 79!
