I'm 99% sure that this Big Ape Bumper Sticker is from WAPE in Jacksonville, Florida.  Can anyone confirm this?  WAPE was a powerhouse Top-40 station with giant-sized signal coverage located at 690 AM from the 1950s to early 1980s.  Lots of pix and whatnot can be found at this Mighty 690 fan page on Facebook.





In 1986 the WAPE call letters were resurrected at 95.1 FM, once again residing over a CHR/Top-40 station in Jacksonville.
