WBRC-FM was a short-lived, but powerful radio station operating during the mid-1940s on FM 105.9.

It was launched after World War II by WBRC-AM owner Eloise Hanna using a 500,000-watt transmitter, making it the most powerful broadcast radio station in the world. The new radio format, however, was slow to become popular and Hanna abandoned FM to focus on television broadcasting in 1948.

The inactive FM station was purchased by Mooney Broadcasting in 1972 and relaunched in 1977 as WKXX-FM, "Kicks 106".
