Houston's "93Q" KKBQ began as a Top-40 station in the early 1980s on both 92.9 FM and 790 AM.  They flipped to Country in 1991 and have gone on to win multiple "Station of the Year" awards from Billboard and the National Association of Broadcasters.  KKBQ is licensed to Pasadena, Texas.

KKBQ sent me this t-shirt in 2002 and thirteen years later they are still branded "The New 93Q".

91.7 KTRU was the volunteer-run station at Rice University in Houston, Texas.  They began in 1967 as KHCR (K Hanszen College Radio) a two-watt engineering project run through the college's buzzer system and turned into a 50,000-watt college radio monster over the ensuing decades.  In 2011 Rice sold the station to the public radio network of the University of Houston for $9.5 million.

Rice Radio now broadcasts at 96.1 FM with the official call letters KBLT-LP although they still use KTRU for marketing purposes.

The bottom two decals were generously donated to Radio Sticker of the Day by Jennifer Waits, the writer behind the excellent college radio blog Spinning Indie.  Thanks Jennifer!
She also writes for Radio Survivor which has her article about KTRU sticker art as well as other college radio happenings.

WVYC went on the air in November, 1976 from York College in York, Pennsylvania.  The 36-watt station now broadcasts at 99.7 FM after moving from 88.1 FM.  Oddly, according to the FCC database, WVYC is still officially licensed to operate at 88.1 even though they have been broadcasting at their current frequency since the late 1990s.  A construction permit issued by the FCC to move to 99.7 expired in 1998 but it appears they made the move anyway.

1550 AM WNTN signed on the air in 1968 from the Boston suburb of (W) NewToN, Massachusetts.  After a year of playing MOR music, they switched to a Free Form/Progressive Rock format which lasted until 1976.  Howard Stern's first professional radio job was at WNTN for a brief time starting in December, 1975.  Format changes to Disco, Adult Contemporary and Oldies followed and by the late 1980s they were a Talk station.  WNTN is a daytime-only operation (only 3 watts at night) and currently broadcasts a community-based format of sports, talk, music and news much of which is aimed at Boston's ethnic residents.  Programs broadcast in Greek, Indian, Hatian Creole and Arabic languages can be heard as well as shows for the area's large Irish population.
