WCCC-FM 1990 - 1999

The decade of the 90s saw some major changes at WCCC including the sale of the station by Sy Dresner to Marlin Broadcasting and the relocation of the station's studios from 243 S. Whitney St to 1039 Aslyum Ave in Hartford.

The first of a fleet of four Hummers owned by Marlin Broadcasting and WCCC.  This one was a brand new 1996 H1 with 6.5 liter diesel engine.  WCCC engineer Ryan Gilligan-Ramsey is seen at the wheel in this 1997 photo.  In addition to being used for promotions and for engineering purposes, Marlin provided the vehicles and drivers to the Newington Children's Hospital in severe weather to transport doctors and nurses from their homes to the hospital.  Over fifty trips were made in a five year period during Blizzards.
