Note: The (Washington) Sunday Star had published a listing of the Top Ten records from various radio stations in Metropolitan Washington as early as 1957. This was the first inclusion of WPGC's Top Ten song list as part of the 'Area Disc Jockeys Pick Top Ten Records' feature which appeared as a separate tabloid insert in the Teen section.

WPGC's Gene Winters began at WPGC - AM as Chief Engineer when the station signed on April 24th, 1954. By 1955, he became General Manager of the AM. In 1956 when WPGC-AM, Inc. purchased WBUZ-FM (by then, WRNC-FM), he was named General Manager of the FM also. From that time through March of 1960, he also did mornings at WPGC. Following his tenure at the voice of Morningside, he was transferred by station owner, Max Richmond to be the General Manager of WPGC's sister station in Las Vegas, KBMI. If anyone knows of his whereabouts today, please email the webmaster.

Milt Grant would later launch an early syndication effort with a radio show that ran Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4PM simultaneously on WPGC, WAVA, WINX and WEEL. The listing below was actually his television show that aired on Channel 5 from 1956 - 1961.

WARL listed in the far left column below later became WAVA-AM. WPIK in the far right column would eventually become the AM side of KIX Country.
