WQCH began in 1954 under the call letters WLFA, operated by Radio Dixie, Inc. - a partnership started by South Carolina newspaper and radio owner J.A. Gallimore and radio station manager, Charlie Gwyn. Charlie later became sole owner and served as General Manager until his death in 1982. Many folks ... See more s remember waking up to his daily "Hank and Charlie Show". "Hank" was a fictional (and non-speaking) character that got all the blame for Charlie's mistakes... that is, with the exception of transmitter troubles. Those were usually blamed on a 'possom' getting into the works... and in our rural area, it actually happened once! Charlie's son, Rich, took over the Manager's chair and later purchased the station - changing the call letters to WQCH in 1988. WQCH stands for "Queen City of the Highlands"...a nickname for LaFayette that Charlie used on the air for many years. The name "stuck" and LaFayette is still known today as the Queen City of the Highlands. Another Gwyn sibling, Sandy, also got her start in radio here as "Sandy on the Sound-track" in high school. Sandy is still in the radio business as well. Doug Williams has been with WQCH since 1983 as staff announcer and sales representative. Doug is a native of Lavonia, Georgia and graduated from Franklin County High School. He completed studies at the Columbia School of Broadcasting in Atlanta... and started his radio career at WFOX in Gainesville in 1974. He also worked at WGGA in Gainesville and at WAIM Radio and TV in Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina before moving to LaFayette. A life-long radio fan, Doug says he knew from age 15 that that's the career he wanted to pursue. Bit of Trivia... Rich and Doug were born in the same year, at the same hospital in another state, just a few months apart. Twenty eight years later, they were both working for WQCH in LaFayette... it IS a small world!
