WUST used to be a rhythm and blues station in Washington, D.C.; its callsign came from its studio location at 1120 U Street, N.W.

During the 1950s, DJs Lord Fauntleroy Bandy and "Terrible" Thomas popularized R&B with high school students, weaning them from Top 40. Part of the appeal of WUST was its location in the red light district of the time.
