to the unofficial tribute site of the Enormous
95 & the Equally Awesome 1580, Washington's
legendary WPGC - AM & FM.
These pages focus on the station's glory years as a TOP 40 blowtorch,
covering the period from the late '50's through the early '80's.
July 4th, 2020 marks 20
years since this site was founded in tribute to Washington's longest
lasting and most influencial Top 40 station ever. Beginning as souvenirs
from a box in a garage, the site grew by leaps and bounds over the
years due to contributions made by station alumni and long time
at over 2,400 pages long, it averages approximately 10,000 hits
per month and is still growing with over 300 airchecks and nearly
200 additional airchecks coming in the future. If you would like
to make a contribution, please email
sure to explore the greatly expanded
history of WPGC, a far more detailed discussion of the various
used on the station through the years, a new section devoted to
books that mention
WPGC and the exact
location of the WPGC-AM tower site, transmitter and studios
when it first hit the airwaves on April 24th, 1954!
