Wayne Bernard, from Rogersville, made a big splash at WKGN in the early 70's, first as afternoon DJ, then as the Program Director. Like many in the Mooney world, Wayne's talent took him to Nashville and sister station WMAK. Wayne Became Charlie Chase, and as they say, the rest is history.
The 101 Audio Vault features Wayne producing an Osmond family Atlanta concert-

The 101 Audio Vault features Bob Baron on WKGN...
Also, here's a 101 Reload from a 2008 Gary Drake post-
I was working in Asheville as a midday DJ in 1972. I got a call from Bob who had come to town to listen to my competition, he liked me instead. I did 9a-noon on 'KGN. Bob was a marketer. We did everything from putting stickers all over the city, bumper stickers, every on air game or contest we could think of, including the LAST CONTEST. We even did WPFC on WKGN. After promoting this for over a week, we found out that WPFC means We Play Fewer Commercials- at least during the promotion.

...who's got the button?
In the history of radio mankind (Ktown anyway) nothing was more elusive but sought after than the 15Q button.
Radio icon Alan Sneed aka Alan Douglas was tasked with chasing after the button, along with many other duties on 15Q. AD had remained on the air force that had morphed from W-149. This was the year of the Lord 1976!

WOKI FM 100.3 went on the air in April 1974...where were you?
mE, I was a sophomore at Bearden High, playing DJ at my homemade radio studio, listening and learning the biz from local Ktown DJs plus John Ward via the Vols and Milo and Ernie hammering out the Braves radiocasts!
As has been noted, when WOKI entered, they were automated aka voice tracked. A few years later I visited the station with my childhood pal Scott Sams. He was afternoon DJ there at that time. We went in to a studio and he produced his show...for the entire week!
This classic 101 Audio Vault is from day 2 of the station's existence, King in the Morning! King had arrived in Ktown a few years earlier on WNOX 990. As the morning DJ at WNOX his show featured "knock, knock" jokes...
