Back In The Day-WABK

WABK AM/FM in June of 1982

WABK-FM is a 50,000 watt station owned by Blueberry Broadcasting. Originally signed on the air as WKME on April 1, 1974, the original station’s studios were destroyed by fire in 1975. After the rebuild, the station adopted the WABK call letters, broadcasting an Adult Contemporary format. Today, “Big 104” is a Classic Hits station serving Central Maine

One thought on “Back In The Day-WABK”

  1. The fire was 1978, not 75. Station was also already WABK at the time of the fire. I know, I was there. Was and still am, close friend of the owner at the time. Was there for the rebuild. As a kid, I remember the new building being constructed and looking at the blueprints on the owners kitchen table. Spent a lot of my youth at the station, even being Stuck there overnight during a blizzard.
