Meet Mary Mason

In 2001, a Mary Mason applied for an LPFM license in Mount Airy (Mayberry) North Carolina. I can’t find any real evidence of a Mary Mason in Mount Airy North Carolina. While Construction Permits were issued, there is not much evidence the station ever went live. I have no real evidence it is the same person and that may not matter – it just matters what I found because of the search.

Any search I do keeps bringing me back to Mary Mason, a radio pioneer from Philadelphia. She was on the air for 40 years. This story does not have a happy ending

Her grandson is believed to have taken up to $1.5 million in her savings, leaving the assisted living center holding the bag.

You might be noticing some patterns….
