Puerto Rico, Day 3 - WCOM

Today we took a one hour ferry ride from the city of Fajardo to the island of Culebra off the east coast of Puerto Rico. After checking into a very nice guesthouse we took a short taxi ride to Flamenco Beach which this website has ranked #2 on their Top 10 Most Exotic Beaches In The World list. I'm no world traveler, but it's the most beautiful beach I've ever seen.

What a jackass.

My goal for the week was to remain unburned and pasty white. I succeeded by going through a full 5 cans of spray sunscreen and wearing this silly hat.

WCOM is a bit of a mystery. Not sure what their format was and I can't find any evidence of a station with those call letters going by "Z95." My records list it as being licensed to Bayamon, Puerto Rico. A station at 94.7 FM with that city-of-license is currently "Reggaeton 94" WODA.


  1. I have this sticker too Greg and have it listed as WCOM. According to the FCC site they had those calls from 1995 to 2002.

  2. Wikipedia lists the current WODA as once being WCOM but known as "Cosmos 94."

  3. Greg....This doesn't jive with the Wikipedia write up, but I looked through my request records and it turns out that I sent WCOM a SASE back in 2001. The Z95 sticker is what I received from them. Just gets more damn confusing........

  4. Z95 was a former radio station based on Mayag├╝ez, Puerto Rico, from 1997 to (approx.) 2002. Its call letters was WCTA and the frequency was 95.1 FM. It was a spin-off of Z93 radio station and had a classic salsa (tropical) format. Actually this frequency is a booster of WMEG (La Mega 106.7 FM).
