On November 16, 1984, WXXX (95 Triple-X) first signed on the air. The first song was "Start Me Up" by The Rolling Stones. WXXX was at first authorized by the Federal Communications Commission to operate at 3,000 watts on 95.3 MHz. At that time it was owned by several well-known Vermont broadcasters including Howard Ginsberg, John Hughes and John Nichols. They sold the station in 1986 to a Boston-based company. It was subsequently sold again to Atlantic Ventures, another Boston-based firm. After that it was purchased by the owners of 620 WVMT in Burlington, Vermont. In the early 1990s WXXX upgraded its signal, increasing power to 25,000 watts and moving one notch up the dial to 95.5 MHz. Although the station is licensed to South Burlington, WXXX's offices and studios are located in Colchester along with co-owned WVMT.
