WACM (1490 AM) is a radio station licensed to serve West Springfield, Massachusetts. The station is owned by Red Wolf Broadcasting. It airs an oldies format.[2] During the late 1960s and early 1970s the station aired a Top 40 format under the callsign WTXL. Although it was programmed very well, it never achieved rating success due to the heavy competition from crosstown WHYN/560.

In 1974, WTXL transitioned to a progressive album-rock format. A year later, the station was sold to a group headed by Boston radio host Jerry Williams. WTXL then went off the air for two months before returning under the new ownership as WNUS, running NBC's News and Information Service.

The station was assigned the WACM call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on September 15, 1983.[1]

On July 3, 2015 WACM changed their format from Spanish to oldies with WXCT. On November 22, 2015 WACM rebranded as "Kool Radio Good Times... Great Oldies".
