This hour long documentary is the story of Ralph Epperson growing up in the 1920s and 30s the son of tobacco farmers in the hills of Southwestern Virginia/Northwestern North Carolina. As a boy he discovered radio and from then on was led by a desire to understand how to transmit sound through the airwaves. This love of technology was coupled with a passion for the music native to his growing up, "it was then called old time and now we call it bluegrass," along with a strong faith in God and community. Thus was born his dream to have a radio station of his own, and in 1948 his first station, WPAQ 740 AM, Mt. Airy, NC, “the voice of the Blue Ridge” went on the air.
