I don't know how Classic Country, WBRF and WWWJ in Galax, popped up on my car radio today, but it was a welcome visitor. This is a station entirely too far away and in too small a place to be as clear as a local station, but there it was playing some pretty good music.
I like country music from quite a few years ago. Not so much because it was more pure or less extensively produced, but ... well, because I do. How the hell can you explain taste?
What caught me, though, and led to this post, wasn't so much the music as it was a tax professional who was giving advice to the locals employing a Southwestern Virginia accent that would make Andy Griffith (from nearby Mt. Airy) sound like a snotty New Yorker. This guy was rustic. And his advice was spot-on, intelligent and clear. I listened for the entire drive and loved every minute of it.
The station's official spot on the dial is 98, but I brought it in on 96.9 in Roanoke and set my selector dealie there.
