Raleigh’s 94.7 WQDR FM & Larry Nixon Nominated for Bluegrass Awards

Raleigh’s own 94.7 WQDR, which bills itself as “Today’s Best Country,” received a nod from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) for Bluegrass Radio Station of the Year. That recognition is thanks in no small part to the PineCone Bluegrass Radio Show, which has been on the air for almost 22 years sharing old and new bluegrass music with an estimated 85,000 listeners per week. Larry Nixon, one of the co-hosts of the program, also received recognition from SPBGMA with a nomination for Bluegrass DJ of the Year. Winners will be announced in early February at the SPBGMA’s 28th Annual National Convention at the Sheraton Music City Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.
