WSJR is a country music station in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania called "Nash FM 93.7" with the slogan "Country for Life." WSJR began broadcasting on Memorial Day 1989 as WDLS. It was operated by local broadcast engineer and bodybuilder Ron Schacht and his wife Denise for several years before being sold to a Carbondale radio group. The format was a mix of classic and contemporary country music with the emphasis on the classic country. The station was somewhat of an experimental lab as continuous experiments were done on antenna types, transmitter modifications and audio processing. During this time, it was considered the best sounding FM station in the area and placed heavy emphasis on its technical quality. The station had a small but dedicated staff and with the management and staff was quite successful. Originally it operated with an effective radiated power of 3000 watts but soon increased that to 6000 watts from its studio and transmitter location atop Plymouth Mountain. When it was sold by the original owners, Mountain Broadcasting, the studios were moved from the transmitter site to Clarks Summit, Pa, then to the Citadel complex on East Mountain in Wilkes Barre. The transmitter remained on Plymouth Mountain.The site was the original site of WMJW licensed to Nanticoke, Pa. on 92.1 but that station was relocated to Penobscot Mountain.
