Providence_4.jpg

ON AUGUST 1, 1975

WPJB, owned by the Providence Journal Co., switched from classical to top 40 as JB105. The original moniker was “JB105 has Big Hits”.  On June 13, 1985, listeners were treated to a continuously repeated recording pronouncing that “WPJB is dead!”.  Between this time, the station would evolve many times, and a true Southern New England broadcast legend emerged.  A radio station with such a rich history deserves a powerful tribute.
