WLUM








Milwaukee, Wisconsin's WLUM (We Love U Milwaukee) has broadcast under various formats since 1979 when they hit the air as "The Station With A Heart," a Disco/Soul outlet.  They were an Urban Contemporary station for most of the 80s eventually transitioning to straight CHR by the early 90s.  Modern Rock took over in 1994 but never completely caught on.  In 2006 WLUM dropped all syndicated programming and use of radio consultants, added a new set of live, local DJs and announced their "independence" along with a more diverse Modern Rock format.

Shania Twain

I received a package of radio stickers a few days ago (thanks Dan!) and this stamp was included on one of the inner envelopes.  Wow!  I didn't know that Canada had a Shania Twain postage stamp and it's a shame that the postmark had to cut right across her picture.

Shania is featured on two radio stickers in the collection.  This one is from KTOM licensed to Marina, California.
FM 99.9 KGEE was licensed to Monahans, Texas and is now Rock station KBAT.
