History[edit]

The station went on the air as WBIM on November 1, 1972 as a non-commercial 10 watt Class D FM station. On April 2, 1982 at 3:00 PM, WBIM-FM increased its power to the current 180 watts (ERP, H/V). On July 7, 1982, WBIM-FM switched to Stereo at 7:00 PM with the playing of Queen's "Body Language" (no specific reason given, it was just what was on the turntable at the time). On June 6, 1979 the station changed its call sign to the current WBIM-FM.[2]
