Radio Name Game - Alice

People-branded radio stations have been around since at least the 1960s when unlicensed pirates Radio Caroline and Radio Jackie broadcast from the waters around England and Radio Veronica anchored off the Dutch coast. However, the vast majority of "name stations" have popped up in the last decade after the success of the Jack FM "playing what we want" format starting around 2002. For the next two weeks or so I'll be featuring stickers from every different "name station" that I have a decal from. We'll start with Alice which first started appearing in the mid-1990s and all seem(ed) to use the same typeface and "@" signs.

"Alice@104.1" was a Modern Adult Contemporary station in St. Louis, Missouri circa 1997. They are currently an Urban Contemporary station "Hot 104.1" WHHL.

"Alice@97.3" KLLC is a Hot Adult Contemporary station in San Francisco, California.

"Alice@107.7" KLAL is a Top-40 station licensed to Wrightsville, Arkansas.
