Did any of you know that George Beasley was a high school principal....<From the Beasley site>....Our Company was founded in 1961 when George G. Beasley, at the time a high school principal, was awarded an FCC license to build his first radio station, WPYB-AM, a daytime-only 500 watt signal, in Benson, North Carolina. 

Interesting reading.
