Three subtly different stickers from WBZ-FM in Boston, Massachusetts.  They've carried a Sports format since 2009 and are currently the flagship station for the New England Patriots, Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics.

Whoever had this sticker before me wrote "WBZ FM Boston?" on the back.  Does anyone know if they were once known as "US 98.5"?  I can't find any confirmation via Google.  Email me at

The WRIF Depository

On this date in 1971, Detroit's WRIF went on the air and became a pioneer in the Album-Oriented Rock format.  "The Riff" started printing up racetrack-shaped stickers in the late 1970s and over the years hundreds of different decals have been printed.  Most WRIF stickers feature a band or artist, while others are station catchphrases/DJs, Detroit-area sports teams or specific concerts.  I have approximately 80 in my collection, some of which have already appeared on the blog and can be seen here, here, here and here.
