Anybody know the origin of the WTIX call letters? The "W" is a no-brainer, but wondering about last three. My uncle, who used to study these things, said that WNOE came from a man named Noe, and WSMB combined the initials of "Saenger" and "Mason Blanche." I think the studios were in the Maison Blanche building.... Anybody got any others?

I remember listening to WNOE as a kid and hearing (over and over again) "A Governor Noe station", or something like that.
