Dan - you're in danger of turning into Joseph Gallant with all these
"doubtless" statements about things that can easily be fact-checked! ;-)
WPGC-FM is not only still on the air, it's usually at the very top of the
DC ratings with its R&B format. An earlier owner (Gannett, if memory
serves) *did* change the FM calls for a while in the late 80s, to WCLY
("Classy 95"), but the WPGC-FM calls were restored a few years later.
WPGC(AM) ran business news for a few years, but is now doing black gospel
and faring quite well, for a niche format.
