Here You Come Again

No, not the mega-hit from Dolly Parton that reached #3 on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart and #23 at The Big 89 in 1978. A familiar set of call letters may rise again like the Phoenix on Chicago airwaves. Not used since 1995, WLS-FM is poised to make a comeback.

Next week, the suits at Citadel plan to petition the FCC to change "True Oldies" WZZN-FM into WLS-FM. Already in place are WLS voices from the past, Dick Biondi and Brant Miller. Could Uncle Lar or Records (It truly IS his middle name) be far behind? If the change is approved, listen for new and classic jingles to appear on or after June 26.
