WFRK (95.3 FM), known as "Live 95", is a talk formatted radio station licensed to Quinby, South Carolina. The station is owned by Community Broadcasters, LLC and is simulcast on WHYM.

History[edit]

Originally, Frank FM aired on W246AW 97.1, a translator with 250 watts which simulcast the WSIM HD-2 channel. Later, Frank FM became a full power station at 95.3. Music came from the 60s through the present, with artists that included Jimmy Buffett, The Beatles, Rod Stewart, Madonna, Hootie & the Blowfish and Phil Collins. The slogan was "We play it all".[1]

On July 19, 2012, WFRK began moving to a talk format as Live 95, while Frank FM returned to the translator and is again branded "97.1 Frank FM". The changed was planned for August 1, but on July 16, WJMX dropped Rush Limbaugh, and WFRK announced July 18 that it was adding the show. Other shows will include "Kinard and Koffee in the Morning".[2][3]
