History

In the 1950s and 1960s the WXXX call sign was licensed in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.[1]

On November 16, 1984, WXXX (95 Triple-X) signed on-the-air. Its first song was Start Me Up (The Rolling Stones). WXXX signed-on at 3kW on 95.3FM. At that time it was owned by several well known Vermont Broadcasters such as Howard Ginsberg, John Hughes and John Nichols. They sold the station in 1986 to a Boston-based company. It was subsequently sold again to Atlantic Ventures, another Boston-based company. After that it was purchased by the owners of WVMT(AM) in Burlington. In the early 1990s WXXX upgraded their signal and moved to 95.5 FM. Although the station is licensed to South Burlington, the stations offices and studios are located in Colchester along with co-owned WVMT. This radio station was the birth place to many radio careers like Michael Maze, Artie the One Man Party, Matthew "LA" Reid, Michael Mann, Troy Shannon, Keith Rice, John "Lucas" Grinnell, Scott Osbourne, Jeff Thomas, Lisa B, Josh "JB Goode" Goodman, Ken Benson, Rob Dawes, Skip Church, Walt Speck, Joe Taylor and Rob Poulin. 95 Triple X is host to DJ Skii, mixing live every Friday night on the Jag show at 9PM.
