WTRY was definitely oldies in 1991-92, when I'd hear them on the WCAP 
air monitor in the studio early on Saturday morning before WCAP signed on!

They went all-sports on the AM around 1998, if memory serves, after 
several years of simulcasting with 98.3 Rotterdam, which lives on as 
oldies WTRY-FM.
