92.7 FM WDRE was a Modern Rock station broadcasting to New York City and parts of Long Island.  They came about after the demise of legendary Progressive/Alternative Rock outlet WLIR due to a prolonged legal battle and loss of license.  WDRE was on the air from 1987 until 2004.

 In 1992 WDRE began simulcasting on 103.9 FM at what was then WIBF in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Three years later The Underground Network was created which simulcast WDRE to about 10 stations in markets such as Albany New York, Nashville Tennessee and Little Rock Arkansas.

The station that currently holds the WDRE call letters is located in Binghamton, New York.  "100.5 The Drive" is an Alternative Rock station whose logo is inspired by the 80s-era WDRE design (for which I sadly don't have a sticker.)
