"Great Soul Radio" WGRT sprang from the ashes of WAAF, a jazz outlet that was one of the first radio stations licensed by the FCC in 1922. WAAF's alumni included Jesse Owens, who did an afternoon jazz show there. In 1967, the call letters were changed to WGRT with a full-time soul format. It lasted six years. Take a peak at this WGRT chart from August 23, 1971 and "feel the groove" of this truly great soul station.
