History Of WQFB
Flagler Beach-based radio station Surf 1700 AM will expand this June to reach Palm Coast as well as Flagler Beach on a new FM frequency, playing music that “brings to mind memories of being on vacation, hanging out by the water, or enjoying a backyard cookout,” according to a Surf 97.3 FM press release. The new Surf 97.3 FM, a not-for-profit, locally-owned station created by Vern Shank, will feature music Shank calls “sunshine pop and happy, feel-good, upbeat oldies … surf music, reggae, ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s rock with a summertime vibe, trop rock and beach country”. “I truly believe that this music is what this town is all about,” Shank said. Local author Tim Baker, a volunteer Surf 97.3 DJ, will also host a Friday-night show playing lesser-known tunes by famous artists. The station maintains a partnership with the Flagler Beach Historical Museum, and plays daily programs about the region’s history, broadcasting from the 86-year old Flagler Beach pier. The AM station was created in June, 2013, along with the station’s website, flaglerbeachradio.com.
