Do you like Bluegrass Music?

If you are a Bluegrass Music fan and don’t already know about WBRF (98.1 FM) in Galax, Virginia, you may be happy to learn about it. If you are already a listener to WBRF you may be pleased to know that WBRF in Galax, and one of its DJs, have been nominated for top national awards from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America.

WBRF covers more than 40 counties in four states - Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia and Tennessee.

This from the Galaz Gazette:
Jay Allen and the station are among six nominees from all over the country in each category.

SPBGMA members and readers of “Bluegrass Unlimited” magazine voted on the nominees.
Debby Stringer, general manager of WBRF, said she is honored by the nominations.

“We're one of the few 100,000-watt stations that play that much bluegrass,” Stringer said. “And that's because we're in Galax.”
