WSBF 88.1 Info

WSBF-FM began as a closed-circuit broadcasting facility on May 1, 1958 and made its first broadcast on April Fool's Day of 1960. It quickly became known as "wizz-bif," and in the early days broadcast such shows as Bob Mattison's (the "Voice of Clemson") agricultural shows (also Broadcast on AM stations ... See more in Anderson, Spartanburg, and Columbia). Other Early shows included a show braodcast from Harcombe in the mornings, a "Late, Late" show featuring old standards, and a "Concert Hall" show featuring the classics. By 1965, WSBF had changed format to include "The Frank Howard Show," "Pigskin Preview," "Night Beat," and "East of Midnight." The purpose was to provide students with educational enterainment, news, and music. The next major format change occurred under Woody Culp, changing to that of "progressive." The strategy at that time was heavy airplay for the most contemporary new groups. Off-beat news stories and non-Top 40 music was emphasized. The current format has evolved from "progressive" to "alternative," a shift taking place in the mid 1980s. The alternative format included progressive, but also includes other genresof music such as classical, rap, jazz, punk, industrial, indie, and many others. The "alternative" name implies alternative in any genre, not just "alternative rock" (the worst named genre of mainstream music can it be both alternative and mainstram?). It seems to have developed into, "We educate the listener by exposing him/her/shim to new genres and to the leading edge of more familiar genres, such as rock. We play what other stations cannot and do not."
