WXSH (106.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic rock format, simulcasting WJKI 103.5 FM Bethany Beach, Delaware. Licensed to Pocomoke City, Maryland, USA. The station is owned by The Voice Radio Network. The station was assigned the WXSH call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on April 13, 2009.[1]

History[edit]

While the station was licensed to Great Scott Broadcasting, it was operated under a local marketing agreement (LMA) by Bay Broadcasting. Prior to 2005, the station was a simulcast of WBEY, a country music station.

In 2005, the simulcast ended and the station switched its programming to SAM-FM, a variety hits programming format distributed by satellite by Westwood One.

In August 2007, WKHW dropped the format and the SAM-FM programming. The station overlapped Great Scott's own programming on WKHI which had a similar variety hits format serving the same geographic area.[2]

The station then became known as "K-Rock", broadcasting a classic rock programming format.[3]

Silent[edit]

In Summer 2008, Bay Broadcasting's LMA with Great Scott Broadcasting ended in a dispute and the station went silent on June 23, 2008. WKHW was granted permission by the Federal Communications Commission to temporarily shut off its transmitter.[4] Granted on August 21, 2008, this "remain silent" authority expires on February 17, 2009.[5] The broadcast license for this station will automatically expire as a matter of law if the station does not resume broadcast operations by 12:01 a.m. on June 24, 2009. On April 13, 2009, while the station remained silent, the call sign was changed to WXSH. On August 4, 2010 the station went dark again.

Studio 106[edit]

On June 22, 2009 WXSH returned to the air at 106.1 FM with a rhythmic oldies format branded as "Studio 106". On August 25, 2009, GSB started a simalcast with 95.3 WKDB tower out of Laurel, DE. On August 4, 2010 the station went dark again.

Maxima 106.1 FM[edit]

On October 29th, 2011 WXSH became Maxima 106.1 FM, a Spanish radio station managed by Hola Media Network. This station simulcasts WJWL, Maxima 900 twenty-four hours a day.

The Vault[edit]

On November 3, 2014 WXSH changed their format to classic rock, branded as "The Vault" (simulcasting WJKI 103.5 FM Bethany Beach, Delaware).[6]
