WRR original began broadcasting via AM in 1920 [http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/RR/ebr1.html "Handbook of Texas Online."] and received its license and call letters on
August 5, 1921(The AM frequency is now privately owned as KTCK). In 1948, WRR-FM received its first FM license. After WRR was sold WRR-FM changed its call letters to WRR.
Despite its public ownership, WRR is a commercial station and sells
advertising. Over the years, private broadcasters in the Dallas-Fort Worth market have made numerous but unsuccessful calls for privatizing the station.
WRR is the oldest commercially operated radio station in Texas and the second oldest in the United States [http://www.wrr101.com/about.shtml "About WRR," "WRR Classical 101.1 FM"] behind KDKA in Pittsburgh.
The station is the starting point of
John Peel's radio career. Peel, who later became a British disc jockey, notably covered the arraignmenthearing of Lee Harvey Oswaldshortly before Oswald was shot and killed.
WRR also first brought the voice of
singer Kay Starrto the airwaves.
