In 1977, WGH was the undisputed champion of Top 40 radio in the Hampton Roads market.  Of course, there were other stations that tried, but few had the longevity and heritage of this station.  Also, by 1977, WGH had a good following on it’s FM signal at 97.3.  If memory serves, this was an AM – FM simulcast for many years, and when the FM finally split off and did its own programming, the AM side became an Adult Contemporary station with a lot of Oldies mixed in.

Dan O’Brien was yet another well-known personality on WGH.  You can learn a lot about the history of Top 40 formatted 1310 WGH on an official Facebook page dedicated to WGH history.  Click here to go to that page.

  1. In my teens – in the last years of the ’60s – my AM radio was set on ‘WGH in Old Virginia.’ I could even tune in the station while driving, just turning the knob until I heard the characteristic compressed audio. No other station sounded quite like WGH.

    I still sometimes remember the sound of WGH on a summer evening, with the crackle of static adding a certain excitement to it as I drove around in my 64 1/2 Mustang.
