Favorite Radio Stations You Listened to When Young
Mine were AM - FM was not yet commercial in the markets where I lived. Stations I listened to for music:

WIKC in Bogalusa. It was a small 250 watt station, but played great music. Everything from Elvis to Fats Domino. Signed off at 10:00 PM.

WNOE in New Orleans. In the 1950s it played R&R. Good daylight reception in Bogalusa, but at night the signal skipped over our area.

WLAC in Nashville. Late night R&B. Mostly a continuous advertisement for a couple of Nashville record shops.

95X WAQX-FM in the Syracuse area was the station I listened to growing up. Late night shows of Dr. Demento and The King Biscuit Flower Hour.

When I was young, it was 610 WSGN in Birmingham on the AM dial. When I was in high school it was WRKK K99, which was an album rock station that had programs like the King Biscuit Flower Hour.

TK 101 in Pensacola was my station (classic rock) growing up as a teen in the early to mid-80's.

104.1 I guess out of New Orleans was the first station I started listening to as a teenager getting into my own music for the first time. But I grew up on pretty much every south Louisiana classic rock station there was

This was back when 104.1 was still alt rock though. I think it’s pop trash last time I was in LA

WDVE - Pittsburgh, mid 70's. Radio was pretty awesome at the time, so was the music.

WLAC in Nashville. Late night R&B.
Spiderman Harris was awesome.

KAAY-AM in Little Rock got over to south Alabama late at night in those days (mid-to-late '70s). Solid rock'n'roll station with no disco crap.

WABB-FM in Mobile was fantastic back in its AOR heyday. Then WKRG-FM went from Easy Listening to Top 40 and completely took over the market in '78 or so, and everything in radio changed for the worse, forever.

Also around that same time, a little FM soul station in Pensacola, WBOP, changed ownership and became Hard Rock WTKX, aka TK-101 (amazingly they are still pretty much playing the same type stuff over four decades later - a remarkable feat in today's market).

But for about a month, when they didn't quite have enough rock records to complete the format change, they still played their R&B and funk stuff as well as hard rock. You haven't lived until you heard Bootsy segue into Ted Nugent

WABB AM, top 40 ca. 1975.
Then WABB FM 97.5, late 70s/early 80s...AOR.
College radio, 92.1 WZEW FM...a playlist 35 years in the making.
