Allegheny Mountain Radio

Allegheny Mountain Radio is a network of three community stations which are public and non-commercial: They are operated by volunteers and a small paid staff. Pocahontas Communications Cooperative, the licensee of the stations, is a non-profit organization formed in April 1979 for educational and charitable purposes and to operate community radio stations. Financial support is derived from individual donations, business underwriting and grants.

Dental hygienist introduced us to a great radio station and the benefits of flossing: Dorries

You know the routine. 

Slide into the pleather recliner. Put your arms at rest. Ease your feet up. Relax. 

Again… relax.… 

A bib slides across your chest. An examination light swings low. Count deep breaths.

“OK, turn a little this way. Open wide, please.” In go the tools of the hygienist’s trade.

All’s good. Until two minutes into the cleaning. The pop playing on the office’s choice of radio gives you a mild ache. It's the music. 

A Powerful Voice in a Quiet Zone

Tucked away in the woods just beyond Pocahontas County High School sits the modest headquarters of a powerful radio network. Its power lies not in the network’s transmission capabilities, but rather in its dogged determination to offer original, local programming that not only entertains and informs its listeners, but involves them as well.

Allegheny Mountain Radio (AMR), as the umbrella network is known, recently adopted Mountain Magic as its tagline. That is a fitting description for an operation that has somehow found a way to serve communities within the remote regions of the United States National Radio Quiet Zone. Radio transmissions in the Quiet Zone are heavily restricted by law to facilitate scientific research by radio astronomers at the Green Bank Observatory.
