A specific US radio station. SemperBlotto 14:08, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedily delete. Totally not dictionary material. No one will look for it here. (Well, never say never, but almost no one will look for it here.) (WT:CFI#Names of specific entities is the only rule that applies to this, AFAICT.)​—msh210 (talk) 15:50, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

I'd love to just agree without hesitation, but at what point is an abbreviation, an acronym or an initialism not dictionary material? We have things like RATM and BBC. Are we using a Wikipedia-style notability test? I think if anything it's just 'voting' rather than any sort of empirical test to see what is allowable and what isn't. --Mglovesfun (talk) 12:40, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
BBC and RATM are abbreviations. WSDP is a code. (See [[w:Call sign#Broadcast call signs]].)​—msh210 (talk) 15:57, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, a point that I was just about to make. However, I have added senses for both W and K as initial letters of US radio call signs. SemperBlotto 07:05, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

I think at least one requirement is that the acronym be used without formal introduction. Within certain groups this is true of RATM, LOTR, SCSI etc., which is why I would have a context label for each. I'm not sure if being known just within a location should be marked as such or left out entirely. The BBC, which hopefully is not at all in dispute, is known even outside of the UK, so that shouldn't be labeled in my opinion. DAVilla 06:34, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
