WPEN was on the air in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from 1929 until 2012.  Their 83 years of broadcasting took place over three frequencies and covered a variety of formats including MOR, Adult Standards, Oldies and Sports.  Their early years featured many hours of programming in foreign languages.  They also pioneered the late night live audience talk show and were one of the first stations to use a live seven-second delay tape system.  From 1939 until 1944 WPEN was owned by watchmaker Arde Bulova.
950 AM is now WKDN, a Religious outlet part of the Family Radio network of stations.
