Anyone remember WBMX?

In its first Chicago ratings maneuver after buying the CBS radio network, Entercom Communications flipped oldies station WJMK to a new classic hip-hop and R&B format. It also announced plans to change the call letters to WBMX. Old-timers will remember WBMX as the "Black Music Experience," broadcasting from high atop the Oak Park Arms during the 1970s and '80s.

Extra points if you recall the call letters and format that preceded or followed WBMX.

WGLD played pop music until WBMX took over around 1975. Then it changed to WVAZ in the early 90's playing Urban adult contemporary

WXFM? Great quasi-underground FM radio in the late 1970s. I think i may have a copy of their Triad magazine in a box somewhere.
