Having grown up in the Tri-Cities, I'm 99% sure that WGFM was the first FM to 
play top 40/rock.  Twas automated.  Positioning statement: Rock music for 
Adults only.  WGFM was the FM sister of WGY-AM and WRGB-TV 6. 

WQBK was the first album rock. 90% sure!

I could say that WGY was my first job in radio if you count Junior Achievement. 
I was 14.  Our group was probably the first to play Led Zeppelin on WGY, as well 
as the last.
