Harry Reagan interviews Marshall Rowland, a country music radio pioneer.

A pioneer country music broadcaster who grew up in South Georgia, Marshall began his successful career as a station owner in Florida and Georgia in the 1950’s when he put on the air a 1-kilowatt daytimer in Fernandina Beach, Florida. The calls were WFBF – or as its moniker was unofficially referred to by the populace, WFeed Bull Frogs. However, his reputation as a leader in country music radio really began as owner of a pair of highly successful stations in Jacksonville, WQIK-AM 1050 (later changed to WCMG) and WQIK-FM 99.1.
