Description: WAAF (107.3 FM, simulcast on WKAF 97.7 FM) is a Boston, Massachusetts, area commercial Album Oriented Rock/Active rock radio station that mixes music that is popular in the modern rock, heavy metal and classic rock genres.Main article: WAAF (FM) historyThe station that became WAAF was actually a distant cousin of an AM station from the early 1930s, WAAB in Boston.By 1951, the station was operating under the call letters of WGTR, at 99.1 MHz, owned by Thomas S. Lee Broadcasting, which had also purchased the Shepard stations in the late 1940s. (Radio-TV Annual, 1952 edition, p. 1268) Subsequently, the WGTR call letters, and the station itself, seemed to disappear, and only WTAG, owned by the Worcester Telegram and Gazette newspaper, operated an FM in Worcester during the remainder of the 1950s.The station which took the call letters of WAAB-FM did not go on the air till the autumn of 1961, operating at 107.3 dial position and owned by Bernard E. Waterman.[citation needed]On August 12, 2009 WAAF became the longest active running rock radio station in Massachusetts, when rival station WBCN signed off analog radio to make room for an all sports talk formatted station.
