WAGL (1560 AM) was a radio station broadcasting an oldies format that was licensed to Lancaster, South Carolina, USA. The station was owned by B. L. "Len" Phillips Jr., under the name Palmetto Broadcasting System, Inc.[1] B. L. Phillips Jr. died September 1, 2014 at the age of 77. The station's license was turned in to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on November 2, 2014, and cancelled by the FCC on May 7, 2015. The station's website is defunct. Because it shared the same frequency as "clear channel" station WFME in New York City (formally WQXR), WAGL only operated during the daytime hours. Its transmitter site was located near the Catawba River, nearly 10 miles from its studio site at 101 S. Woodland Drive.
