WDAO

I saw this license plate while driving to work the other day and snapped a picture at a stoplight.  The plate almost certainly refers to WDAO "The Real Rhythm of the City," an Urban Adult Contemporary station here in (W) DAyton, Ohio.

WDAO went on the air in 1964 at 107.7 FM and, according to their website, was the first FM Rhythm & Blues station in the United States.  The daytime-only outlet has been broadcasting at 1210 AM since 1985.  WDAO airs a mix of R&B, Gospel, Blues and Jazz and was the main radio player in Dayton's legendary Funk scene of the 1970s and 80s.
