Attack of the Killer B100s

"B100" WBYT is a Country station from Elkhart, Indiana.

This "B100" was a Top-40 station licensed to Burgaw, North Carolina. My records show that their call letters were WKXB but they might actually have been WVBS when this sticker came out. They would later become a Country station "Kix Country 99.9" which would fit the WKXB call letters better. Anybody know for sure? This frequency is currently home to a Rhythmic Adult Contemporary station "Jammin 99.9" now licensed to Boiling Spring Lakes, NC.

UPDATE:  A little more history from a reader:

Hello Greg,
I happened across your web blog with regard to Radio Station Decals/Stickers...
With regard to B100 (WKXB)... its been a long time.. however, before that radio station was a top 40 station - it use to be a gospel station... the call letters were WPJC (We Praise Jesus Christ).
I was only about 10/11 years old at the time, my parents had just moved us down from Philly, Pa during the summer...this would be around 1981/82... before we left Philly, Pa, I remember my mom taking communications course work part time and that helped her to land a radio DJ position with the burgaw, radio station that was call signed: WPJC.
I'm sure the station has changed over the years, it was a quite small station back then, had only 2 rooms for DJ's back then(yes, i had been inside on a few occasions, even got to cut a commerical for a hair salon as I recall once)...but they were always broadcasting on 100.
I think it was around 85/86(it was about the same time when the TV series called: The Greatest American Hero was on air) when the radio station switched from gospel to a top 40 station... as the owner was none other than the actor who played "Hunniecutt" from the M*A*S*H TV series. I think my mom still has that picture of her with him in the station together!)
Anyway, at the end of my mom's shift, she would play the theme song from that TV show for me to let me know she was on her way home(my parents divorced when I was about 13)...
Hope this background helps you out some on updating your web/blog...
Sincerely,
Brandon

Winks


WINK-FM is a Hot Adult Contemporary station licensed to Fort Myers, Florida.

WINK-AM was a co-owned Adult Standards station also licensed to Fort Myers. Coincidentally, the satellite-delivered Music Of Your Life format once featured this guy as one of their on-air personalities. WINK-AM now lives at 1200 AM and carries a News/Talk format. Reflective chrome stickers never scan well and this one is no exception.

"WINK 104" WNNK is a Hot Adult Contemporary station from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Back in the early 1990s, my grandpa--who was in his seventies at the time--had a WINK 104 bumper sticker stuck to the back of his Subaru. I think WNNK was a straight-ahead Top-40 station at the time but I never asked him why he had the sticker. His musical tastes were traditional German music and church hymns so there's no way he was listening to Vanilla Ice and New Kids on the Block.....was he?
