The WADB call letters previously belonged to the first station to occupy the FM frequency of 95.9 mHz and licensed to Point Pleasant, N.J. That station was started in the fall of 1968 by the late Adamant Brown of Rumson, N.J. The call letters stand for Adamant and Dorothy Brown (his wife). WADB (FM) featured a so-called "beautiful music" format at its inception with very few deviations from that format until September of 1996 when new owners changed the call letters to WRAT and adopted the so-called "active rock" format, which relies heavily on rock music featuring guitars.
