The history of WHDH goes back to 1929 when they went on the air at 830 AM as a daytime-only station in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  They moved to 850 AM in 1941 and soon after began broadcasting on a full time basis.  Post World War II, the increasingly successful WHDH played popular music with their strong lineup of DJs as well as Boston Bruins hockey and Boston Celtics basketball.  They were the flagship station of the Boston Red Sox from 1946 to 1975.  On Saturday nights WHDH aired one of the first sports talk shows "The Voice of Sports."  In 1994 850 AM became WEEI, an all-Sports station which now airs ESPN Radio's entire lineup of nationally syndicated programming.
