History[edit]

Beginnings[edit]

Licensed to Gladwin, Michigan, it first began broadcasting on February 7, 1979 under the call sign WGMM, which stood for "Gladwin's Music Machine".

The station's original format was adult contemporary music, which continued until the switch to country in the early 1990s (well after the calls changed to WGDN-FM).

WGDN-FM's coverage area includes the Gladwin, Mount Pleasant, Clare, Standish, West Branch and Houghton Lake areas, with a listenable signal westward to Big Rapids and east to Bay City.

WGDN-FM Today[edit]
