Call Letter Comedy

If a licensee is clever, often they manage to acquire one of the few four letter words that the FCC will allow. The following is a list of calls that spell words. There aren't a lot of options, so try to think of these as particularly clever people.

Five bonus points if you can make a sentence with these.
