This is the 20th anniversary of WXEF Radio.
The station signed on at 3,000 watts and at 97.7 on the FM dial. About a year later, we boosted our power to 6000 watts, necessitating a shift to 97.9. We've had different mottos and many different people who have worked here, but two things haven't changed; consistent support from our advertisers and faithful allegiance from our listeners.
A celebration will take place later this year to mark the anniversary. Thanks for your help, and here's to another 20 years!!!
