If you live in Newport News or the surrounding areas, you have probably heard of the abc store. Here there is no such thing as “a” or “the” abc store. The abc store does not exist, its a slogan. It is the name that the abc store uses to make its advertising and marketing efforts more visible. The abc store is a marketing name for itself.
So how did we get to the abc store? Well, the abc store was originally a radio station. It was started in 1972, when the city of Newport News bought a radio station in the nearby city of Virginia Beach. In 1980 the station was moved to Newport News. With the move, there was no longer a city owned radio station in the area, so the city of Virginia Beach took over the name.
The abc store’s history is more complicated. In the early ’80s the city of Newport News purchased an adjacent radio station, WCAM, to operate as a third radio station. When the city of Newport News was the owner of the radio station, the WCAM name wasn’t used. In 1996, because the city had decided to change its name to the city of Newport News, they gave the abc store the new name.
I mean, its a radio station, but this is the first time I’ve heard of that happening.
Since the city of Newport News still owns the radio station, the whole thing may have some interesting implications for the future of radio. The ABC store may have been the last remaining radio store owned by the city of Newport News. It had been abandoned when the name change from the city of Newport News to the city of Newport News was announced, and in its old days had been one of the last remaining stores in the county.
So what does it mean? It means that if the ABC store ever closes for good, it will be the last radio store in the area. The city of Newport News will probably be asking for help from other radio stations in the area to re-open. The only way that I can imagine this happening is if it means the radio stations in the area will be able to come together and ask the city for help.
We can only imagine this happening because it was the last remaining radio store in the area. Now, radio stores were once a very common way to keep your local newspaper in print. In the days before the internet, a great many local papers would have been printed in the paper’s local newspaper and then sold over the internet. But the internet didn’t exist then, and the paper was still in print by physical means.
Radio stores were still very common in the late 20th century and early 21st century, so they were the last remaining, but it’s not hard to imagine them going away.
It may or may not be that the internet is the only way to get the paper you’ve missed if you’re looking for it, but it sure seems like a good idea to me. A radio store would be a great way to make sure you get a paper you don’t want to miss.
Although the internet has been around for quite some time now, there have been no radio stores. That is until a few years ago. In May of 2006 there was a radio store in New York City that was run by a man named Michael Miller. He was the son of radio show host Fred Miller, who was also the owner of a radio station in New York City called WRZ.
