A long time, award-winning fixture of Thomasville, WJDB's calls stand for the original owner, J.D. Bishop.  A little bit about the station is available at their website.  The FM station has been on the air since at least the mid 1970's.  Going back as far as the early 80's the station played country music, although they often played pop music at night to attract a younger audience.  In 2005, the station received a permit to move up to class C2 facilities with 40 kW from the WJDB AM tower site, but that permit was never built and it expired in 2008.
