Now in its ninth year, WVMR, whose call letters stand for "West Virginia Mountain Radio," beams its 5,000-watt signal throughout the mountains and valleys of eastern West Virginia and western Virginia. One un- usual feature of the station is its large percentage of volunteer workers. Only six of the 36- member staff are paid. The re- mainder are Pocahontas County residents who come to the stu- dios to help where they can--in production, announcing, report- ing, and office assistance. Ral,nwood Gafferv County Puts 106 E.

"It meets a need here in this area. People on WVMR sound like themselves, not some broadcast-school- trained people. They reflect the communities where they live." The studios are located at the southern edge of Seneca State Forest on Highway 28, adjacent to Pocahontas County High School. The building is partially underground, the idea of Omar Boyer, first president of the radio's board of directors, and Jhn Dolan, engineer. WVMR be- gan as the Pocahontas Commu- nications Co6perative, a tax-ex- empt, non-profit organ~ation, in April 1979 when Pocahontas County citizens began working toward the goal of establishing a local radio station. Volunteers made a pilot "test run" broad- cast July 1981 during Marlinton's Pioneer Days and began regular operations August 17. Contributions from numerous agencies and foundations helped get the station off the ground, including a $25,000 matching grant from the Pocahontas County Commission. The Poca- hontas County Board of Educa- tion leases the land on which the studios are located at a cost to the station of $1 per year. Volunteer labor continues to be the lifeblood of WVMR. "Pretty much anyone who wants to can help here," Mr Kinderman said. "We train them to work in the news department, business of- rice, production department, or to work on the air." Because of the volunteer help from through- out the county, the station is able to offer a wide variety of lo- cal news from organizations, county and municipal govern- ment bodies, recreational facili- ties, and churches. Regular local news programs include the "Noon Hour Magazine," "This Week on Mountain Radio News," and "Over the Coffee Cup." Two volunteers have been working at WVMR since it be- gan: Dunmore postmistress Anna Belle Scheaffner, host of the Sunday morning gospel sing- Thanksgiving Holiday Special OPEN 4 NIGHTS!
