Happy Birthday, WSM!

Nashville’s iconic 650 AM WSM is celebrating 87 years of broadcasting today (10/5) with a full month of special events and programming in October. The station originally went on the air on Oct. 5, 1925.

Throughout the month of October, listeners will have the chance to win Grand Ole Opry tickets for an entire year. On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2 pm, a series of special shows will be hosted by Billy Dean, Riders in the Sky, Shawn Camp, Rhonda Vincent, Lynn Anderson and more.

On Monday, Oct. 8, Eddie Stubbs will sit down with the Queen of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson as part of his Intimate Evening series live from the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Ford Theater. The interview will stream live on wsmonline.com.

“I couldn’t be more excited for the future of WSM,” said 650 AM WSM Program Director Joe Limardi.  “Just as the technology of 1925 brought Nashville coast to coast through 650 AM the technology of today brings WSM all over the world and to the palm of a listener’s hand, thus ensuring that the legacy of WSM will carry on for the next generation of music fans.”
