I'm not Donna, and as a radio historian I'm a mighty poor substitute, but 
for now . . . the 1260 spot occupied by WVDA was originally that of WNAC, 
which moved to 680 (which in turn was originally WLAW in Lawrence).  WVDA 
later became WEZE, around 1957.  Donna can, and I'm sure will, tell us more.
