Mid Carolina Radio

a website for broadcasters


Mid Carolina Radio is designed to be a history of Alamance and Rockingham County radio stations told in text, audio and pictures. It’s the story of those stations and the people who worked there, especially when all of the stations were locally owned and operated.  

The website is a work in progress, and will be made better by your pictures, audio cuts, stories and input. Your help is also needed to make sure the information contained is historically accurate. New material will be added the first of every month.

Welcome…and enjoy…MidCarolinaRadio!




Here are a few new items that had not been posted yet. We're on the lookout for more material from Rockingham County and hope to have some new items by the end of September.

Roger Wade pointed out to us that we had incorrectly attributed a Burlington Times News ad for WWOK to the WQWX page, and not WSML Miscellaneous where it belongs. By all means, please let us know when corrections need to be made.

In case you missed it, there is an update on the history of WBBB on the station's Home Page. Some of the new information comes from an interview with Minnie Canada in a September 1977 article in the  Burlington Times News.  

He drew it from memory, but here's a sketch of the WBBB floor plan by Ted Nelson when he worked at the station on the sixth floor of the Alamance Hotel in the early 70s.

Our thanks to Larry Riggs for sending us a picture of his ticket stub from a Ronnie Milsap and Crystal Gayle concert WPCM promoted in 1978. Notice the ticket price in the middle!

Larry also sent us a couple of 1978 WPCM music charts.  You can see the cover and information inside at  WPCM Miscellaneous.
