History[edit]

DWBC used to be a music station from 1972 to 1992. It was also simulcast on 96.3 until 1980, when the latter became RK96. In 1988, Mickey the Clown from WXB 102 reappeared on DWBC as Mick Flame and hosted a 102-styled show called New Wave Nights with former WXB 102 DJs. In 1992, its format changed to News & Public Service. In May 2007, it closed down.[1]
