  1. Thank you SO much for sharing this WCFL sign-off show. I lived in Lynchburg, VA and did afternoon drive at one of the very few CCM stations in the nation (1050 WBRG-AM). When I left the station in the evening after powering off, I would listen to WCFL when the radio waves drifted . When I graduated from high school in June, 1986, I had the privilege of visiting WCFL’s studios and tour the station with these guys on this aircheck, then saw the station engineer hold a florescent bulb in the air at the base of the tower (without touching anything) and saw it glow. WCFL was a pioneer in CCM programming and was an inspiration to me at the inception of my broadcast career.
