1490’s programming was simulcast of 1340 WMBO Auburn until around New Years Day when its flipped to the All-Beatles programming that was also heard on 103.9 WNDR/95.3 W237AY prior to its flip to Classic Hits “The Dinosaur“.
WOLF has a Construction Permit to build two new towers at its current location, but Scott Fybush reminds us that
previous variations of that CP have been allowed to lapse with no construction for much of the past decade. Additionally, Pathway Community Radio has a CP for a 250 watt translator, 93.9 W230CD Syracuse licensed to rebroadcast 1490.
