WMVB

1440 AM WMVB (W Millville Vineland Bridgeton) airs a Variety format in Millville, New Jersey.  They were probably an Easy Listening or Adult Contemporary station when this sticker first appeared.  They stopped simulcasting on FM in 1988.  97.3 FM is currently WENJ, an ESPN Radio-affiliated Sports station.

WJSR

WJSR was a student-run station broadcasting from the campus of Jefferson State Community College in Birmingham, Alabama.  Interestingly, they shared the same frequency as another college radio station in the same city--Samford University's WVSU.  Apparently this wasn't a time-share agreement.  Both stations operated at the same time utilizing directional antennas away from each other.  WJSR was on the air from 1979 until 2014.

The coupons on the back of this KOTC bumper sticker dates it to 1995.  Given the slogan on the decal, they may well have been a Country station although 1996's Broadcast Yearbook says they carried an Adult Contemporary/Classic Gold format.  KOTC was licensed to Kennett, Missouri and went silent in 2008.  830 AM first began broadcasting as KBOA in 1947.

Radio Works

I'm not exactly sure what Radio Works was when they existed in the early 1990s.  I do know they were part of Communication Graphics, Inc. (still around, although now known as Comgraphx) a designer and printer of promotional marketing products including, I assume, radio station bumper stickers.  You can read their "manifesto" below which is printed on the back of the decal.

WRNO



99.5 FM WRNO was a Rock station in New Orleans, Louisiana from 1967 until 2006.  In 1982, WRNO "The Rock of the World" became the first commercial shortwave station to broadcast from the United States.  They originally carried a separate Rock format but eventually began simulcasting WRNO FM's programming.  It's unclear if the top sticker was for the FM station or the shortwave station--or both.
The 100,000-watt FM outlet now carries a News/Talk format while WRNO Worldwide carries a Religious format.

WNEW




New York City's WNEW spent over 30 years as a Rock station--from October, 1967 until September, 1999.  Over the decades their format shifted from Progressive Rock to AOR and eventually included Classic Rock, Alternative, Active Rock and Adult Album Alternative.


A short-lived era of Hot Talk then took over which lasted until January, 2003.  At one point, their  ratings dipped to 0.7, an unprecedented level for a major market FM station and lower than many non-commercial stations in the city.

After time spent as "Blink 102.7" and "Mix 102.7", WNEW became Adult Contemporary "Fresh 102.7" in January, 2007 and eventually took the call letters WWFS.  The WNEW calls returned in March, 2016.

A sticker from around 1993 when "96 Wave" was an AOR station.
