WXKW also inspired the call letters for another station years later.  When Ed Levine put his new station at 99.5 FM in Bridgeport (Syracuse) NY on the air, he gave it the call letters WTKW, in honor of WXKW.  As far as being lucky/unlucky, WTKW does seem to "hold their own ground", but they are by no means a ratings powerhouse in the market.
