The Return Of WBOC Radio

Something old is new again.

When the company that owned WBOC television and radio sold the stations in 1980 WBOC radio..on the air for 40 years at that time.. was purchased by a separate owner.

 A new radio era is now underway for WBOC with the launching of its 102.5 FM station from the very studio that was once home to radio personalities such as Lanny Layton, Geoge Hack, Tom Maguire, and Ralph Pennewell . 

Complimenting the music and live local DJ's will be the resources of the WBOC-TV news and progamming departments.

Radio Personality Remembered.

For those of us who were growing up or were young adults here on the Eastern Shore during the "Top 40" radio days we tuned in to Salisbury's WJDY to hear the latest hit records. John Psota, known on the radio as "Johnny Williams," was on the air there for about a decade beginning in the late 1950's and he also devoted much of his time in promoting  youth activities. John passed away this week at age 91.  Some of the other WJDY personalities were Dick Ireland, "RT" (Roland Twig) and Jim King.
