City, NC and WBMA, Beaufort, NC. These were 1000-watt stations.
A girl named Bobbie Dennis was the afternoon DJ at WMBL. She was bold
enough to play records by The Drifters, Clyde McPhatter, and Big Joe Turner to
name a few. This was one of only two local stations to play R&B music. The other
was WBMA, 1400 AM in Beaufort, NC. A girl named Mel Sheppard and late
another girl named Sandy Pate had afternoon shows and played the same R&B
music. Believe me, this was very bold for this area at that period of time.
