Something was missing. The music you could hear on the radio wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. Where had all the good songs gone and why wasn’t anyone playing them? Before recording studios became regimented and radio stations corporate there was a different sound. It was pure and soulful. You could actually hear the lyrics of songs and feel the emotion of the artist. And the music had rhythm…. rhythm that made you move and want to dance. Where was THAT music? Had someone locked it up and put it away. Had “Big brother” decided you couldn’t hear this music played back to back. That if you dared played it on a radio station who knows what might happen? It wasn’t safe for the soul. Well, we think that’s crazy talk. Not safe for the soul? Who are they kidding, it unleashes the soul! And with that…we were on a mission. A mission to bring Southern Soul, Carolina Beach Music and Old Skool back to the radio…to find and play the songs that ignite the soul! We’re Beach Boogie and Blues and we thank you for listening and helping us spread the word. Turn us on and see what happens. We bring the happiness!

Early History of the Station: The history of the station dates back to 1963 when Roy H. Park, owner of WNCT-TV bought WGTC, Greenville’s oldest radio station. At that time the station broadcast at 5,000 watts of power at 1590 AM. After buying the station the call letters were changed to WNCT. Eventually the AM frequency was moved to 1070 and power increased to 10,000 watts. In 2006, WNCT increased its daytime power to 50,000 watts which gave the station one of the largest AM signals in the Carolinas and the in North Carolina to broadcast in high definition or HD. Beginning in 2013 FM signals were added to the Beach Boogie and Blues Network.
