WCBX Pictures

The house at 113 North Pierce Street in Eden where many of you worked at WCBX was demolished in July (2015). The property was purchased by Central Christian Church next door, and apparently will be used for parking.  The building was most recently used by the Genesis Medical Group.
Many thanks to Frank Dwyer, who spent a lot of time documenting  the demolition process. We appreciate your efforts, Frank!

Martin Rudisill
was Music Director at WCBX from 1976 to 1980 and had the opportunity to meet Kenny Rogers and Dottie West at a show in the Greensboro Coliseum March 10, 1979.

Here's a picture of Martin, Assistant Vice President of the Bank of Eden Mark Hopkins and WCBX Operations Manager Mike Moore in 1979. The picture was taken in the bank's vault coinciding with the new release of "Words" by Susie Allanson. The record was kept there until it was released nationally.
The pictures of Kenny and Dolly and the bank vault may take a few seconds to load.

Thanks to Martin for sending us his material.
