UPDATE: After 21 years of searching, finally found the entire meaning for the calls KWBS. The stations calls stood for the owners full name. I had been searching for his middle name. My buddy Mike Kolb sent me an ad mentioning the station in 1930 after the calls had changed to KVEP, so Thanks go to Mike.

27 KWBS William Berthold Schaeffer (owner).
