WAEZ....'94.9 on your FM dial'

WAEZ was owned by and named for Arthur E. Zucker in Miami Beach. WAEZ was an easy listening station playing the likes of the Ray Conniff Singers, Percy Faith and Big Band music with no more than four vocals per hour. Studios were located in the lower lobby of the Deauville Hotel on Collins Avenue. Zucker negotiated free rent for the station in return for frequent mention of the hotel name during weather forecast. An announcer might say, "The temperature in Miami is 88 degrees. Here at the beautiful Deauville Hotel on Miami Beach, it's 85." -via Wikipedia

Miami News, Sept. 11, 1963.
