Before and after Z-Rock (WXZR 98.7 East Lyme...now WNLC) the airwaves, WAAF 
was extremely popular in the New London area thanks to the Navy sub base 
and all the young sailor wanting to rock on while they were on shore 
leave.   The signal down there is pretty decent, too.

However, ever since FNX took over WWRX 103.7 Westerly, RI...WAAF's 
influence in southeastern CT has dropped to nil.  Sad as it is, WWRX rocks 
better and with a much better signal over that area.   I believe that's 
also why 102.3 Stonington also dropped the hard rock motif, but I'm not 
sure about the timing there...
