History[edit]

WSTB first began broadcasting in September 1973 at 91.5 FM. On July 11, 1995, the station began broadcasting at 88.9 FM; the move was made possible after WAPS/Akron moved from 89.1 to 91.3 FM. WSTB is fully supported by listeners.[1][2][3][4]

Current programming[edit]

WSTB airs alternative rock music throughout most of the week. The sole exception is Sunday, when the station airs a day-long block of oldies music; the station itself is effectively rebranded The Sunday Oldies Jukebox.
