WQSL

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

WQSL are the call letters of radio station in New York City that Norman Blore manages.

Wolfman Jack is an on-air personality at the station, managed by a director named Arnie.

The music that the station plays includes Linda Ronstadt's version of "That'll Be The Day" and Billy Joel's "My Life", in addition to other music of the era.

The radio station, located on the 70th floor of the International Trade Center, is targeted by Andromus and Centuri, two surviving Cylons that discover Earth but are forced to crash land after impacting with Recon Delta. They hope to use the powerful 150,000 watt transmitter to communicate the location of Earth to the Cylon Empire, and thus destroy the last remaining outpost of humanity; they are subsequently thwarted by Troy and Dillon (The Night the Cylons Landed, Part II).

Notes

  • The call letters to the station are revealed in "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part II".
  • The fact that they have a 150,000 watt transmitter is boasted about in promotional materials for the station. Wolfman Jack's radio buffers refer to the station as "150,000 watts of pure magic".
