A BRIEF HISTORY OF WVFA AND ITS PREDECESSORS

WVFA has a history that goes back approximately 35 years – in 1978 Pastor Bill Wittik arrived in the Upper Valley to pastor a small church in Wilder, which he did for 26 years.  One evening, trying to stay awake while driving up a particularly boring stretch of I-89 from Concord, Bill was listening to Christian music on a small portable cassette recorder beside him on the seat, and prayed, Lord, I wish other drivers on this road could be blessed by the same music I’m hearing.  To Bill’s surprise, the Lord answered, They could if you started a Christian radio station.  Over the next three decades one thing led to another while Christian radio came and went in several forms in the Upper Valley and surrounding regions.  A common element in all of the failures seemed to be that the overhead of these stations exceeded the support base, so a decision was made to develop a new sustainable business model that could be supported on a shoestring.  To keep operating costs low an automated format using satellite delivery from SkyLight was initially used. When SkyLight closed down its network in October of 2007 other satellite providers were approached, but none seemed capable of offering the variety and quality of programming to which WVFA’s listeners had become accustomed, so we opted to develop our own programs using the Station Playlist Program System.  Fred Widmayer was the mastermind to putting this together, using criteria supplied by station management. Others have now contributed their efforts, and the Upper Valley has an air product it can truly call its own.
