The building that WCCC is in was originally built by the Spencer family in the late 1920's for $70,000!  In the 40's the Spencer family sold it to Dr. January and Dr. Thaw who ran a OBGYN practice out of it.   It was converted to radio station use in 1977.

On August 1, 2014
August 1, 2014 was The Rock's last day.  Marlin Broadcasting, who had owned WCCC-FM since 1998, sold the station to Educational Media Foundation and shortly after 5pm on the first day of August the format was switched to EMF's "K Love" contemporary religious format.  All employees of WCCC-FM and sister station Beethoven Radio were let go and "The Asylum", home to WCCC since 1998, became silent.
