Originally WGAY, on Kemp Mill Road, was owned by John Kluge, a produce
distributor who eventually became METROMEDIA czar. Kluge sold WGAY, a 1kw daytimer, to country music exec Connie B. Gay who
obviously kept the call letters. When the 'concert hall' format was established by GM Ed Winton February
1, 1960, the WGAY calls were kept on the FM and AM became WQMR. R A Campbell relates..."When the plans
to demolish the Kemp Mill Road studios and move to the World Building were undertaken, Kluge came by to say 'goodbye' he told
me he would like to keep some old award memorabilia displayed in the lobby".
