Is WPAQ still on AM (740, IIRC) in Mt Airy NC? Back in the late 40s, when I
spent a couple of weeks on vacation in western NC (nearest market was
Knoxville TN), I could pick up maybe half a dozen stations that broadcast no
kind of music other than Bluegrass. One that I remember was WGAP
Marysville-Alcoa TN (1450?). In those days, I don't think that anyone had
yet named the genre Bluegrass.

Having been raised in New York City, that kind of music sure sounded odd to
me and I can't say that I much liked it. I guess it's an acquired taste.
