I know what WGBY stands for: Great Blue Yonder. I've seen it on GBH's website over 6 and a half years ago, but I don't know it is still there. I don't know where the "Yonder" is, but that's the origination of the calls. Steven312 23:37, 5 January 2006 (UTC)


I worked at "gby late 70"s early 80's was told the origin of the call letters by Jack Caldwell "gby's first GM.

WFCR note.[edit]

While WFCR is licensed to Amherst, it recieves funding from Five Colleges (Hence WFCR: Five College Radio). It's studios are located at the Hampshire House in UMass, and UMass acts as the licenseholder, however WFCR is operated independently of UMass by the Five Colleges.

What's In A Name?[edit]

I just witnessed a station ID during The This Old House Hour. "This is WGBY and WGBY-DT..." I am watching WGBY via Comcast cable tv and I wonder whether this station ID is just an old tape they keep running (absent-mindedly?) or if there are still two signals being beamed out. The article mentions analog transmission was permanently terminated on 11/05/2008. Seven1672 (talk) 04:07, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Wgby logo lg.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Wgby logo lg.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
