WDVR Billboard

Here's a photo dating from 1966. It was during that time that WDVR, 101.1 FM became the number one FM Radio station in the United States. Today, the station is still a top leader in the market as B-101, WBEB.

The station used the call letters WDVR until 1981. On May 14, 1981, the station became known as WEAZ. On June 19, 1989, there was a slight change in the call letters to WEAZ-FM. Four years later, on May 26, 1993, it became WBEB-FM. A couple of years after that, on May 19, 1995, there again was another slight change in call letters to just WBEB. We, of course, know the station as B-101.
