WARMland Remembered

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Originally Aired March, 2003 on WVIA-TV

More than 40 years ago, Northeastern Pennsylvanians discovered a shocking new sound on their radios, and within weeks, more than half of the people here were calling the area WARMland. The radio station was WARM: 5,000 watts at 590 AM, delivered by “five towers of power.” The “Mighty 590” became Northeastern Pennsylvania’s number one station practically overnight, and it stayed on top for decades. WARMland Remembered, a WVIA Original Documentary Film produced in 2003, is a trip back in time to when AM Radio was king. Told through the memories of the people who made WARM the Mighty 590 and the number one station for over 12 years. The story takes place between the years of 1958 and 1972 and is told by listeners and DJ's of that time. This documentary will take you back to WARM's glory days with historic photos, memorabilia and several of the personalities once known as WARM's Sensational Seven.
