    In the early days of radio, 1920's. NBC and GEC were very closely associated in the radio field. So, this association is why the NBC chimes played G-E-C.

    And there was Metromedia Country for a while, who's key stars were Mel Street, Onie Wheeler, and Bobby G. Rice. Metromedia bought the former Royal American Records in Nashville, TN. Ran it as Metromedia Country for a few years, then sold out to GRT. Then out of bankruptcy Sunbird Records. Now owned by Gusto Records.
