FORMAT CHANGE, From Country to Oldies, 56 WFIL Philadelphia | September 2 1983
Radio Station: Golden Oldies 56 WFIL Philadelphia
Frequency: 560 kHZ
format: Country / Oldies
WFIL was one of the big powerhouse radio stations of the 1960s & 70s in Philadelphia. In the 1970s, as listeners migrated to FM, WFIL was losing listeners. The station changed to Adult Contemporary, then Country, but they still could not attract listeners to the station. By September 1983, management decided to try something new, and flipped to oldies. For a while, the oldies format held it’s own. This aircheck features that flip from Country to Oldies. -Ellis
