On January 9, 1958, WMDE first signed on at 98.5 MHz. Owner Hall Electronics originally used the experimental call sign W4MDE. In the early 1960s, WMDE moved to 98.7, a frequency used from 1948 to 1950 by WCTP. Early formats on WMDE included classical music, middle of the road music and jazz. In 1966, WMDE played country music and aired Tobacco Radio Network news. Suburban Broadcasting sold WMDE to Mido Broadcasting in 1973 and the station became WPET-FM, airing Southern gospel music as a sister station to AM 950 WPET.
If you love all kinds of music, we’re your station. It’s because we love music and we listen to what you tell us that we play such a wide variety of music from the jazz age to the best new stuff you love. We listen while we play everything. Thanks for listening.
