Notes/History:

  • 3/2010: Dick Purtan retires from radio and leaves WOMC's morning show.
  • 4/2009: WOMC no longer using 'Oldies' as its positioner. Music has 'moved forward' to include titles from the 1980s. WOMC-HD2 continues to air 50's - 60's oldies.
  • 5/4/2007: What's old is new again- "Oldies 104.3" positioner returns to use, but eventually gives way to classic hits format as 'Detroit's Greatest Hits' during 2008-09.
  • 4/24/2006: After slowly limiting the use of the term 'Oldies', station offically repostions itself as 'Motor City's 104.3 WOMC'. Format remains the same - but it has evolved since 1989 from 50's-60's Oldies to 60's - 70's Oldies, even dipping into the early 1980's occasionally.
  • 4/15/1996: Debut of Dick Purtan mornings
  • 1989: Format change from Middle-of-the-Road to Oldies as Oldies 104.3
  • 4/28/1988: Infinity purchases station. Infinity later becomes part of CBS and then Viacom.
  • 19xx: Format evolves into Soft Adult Contemporary, then eventually is more 'Middle of the Road' by the mid-1980s, featuring more Oldies than most AC stations.
  • 19xx: Call sign change to WOMC- 'Wayne, Oakland, Macomb Counties'
  • 3/5/1948: On-air with beautiful music / easy listening format.
