WIL Radio Collection

The collection contains show scripts, publications, ephemera, and memorabilia of WIL Radio.

WIL radio began broadcasting at the 1430 AM frequency under the call letters WEB on April 5, 1922, though the station might have been established as early as 1920 under letters 9ZB which was owned by Lester “Eddie” Benson. WEB and WIL was a low-power, local-coverage station until 1939 when it went from 100 to 250 watts. In March 1949, WIL increased to 5,000 watts.
