Ed Salamon Signs New Book Today

c996738ec673e48824fcde5023cde6e5Ed Salamon will be signing his new book, WHN: When New York City Went Country, at the Nashville Crossroads on Broadway this afternoon (Feb. 28) during the CRS New Music Showcase reception at 2 p.m.

Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of WHN’s switch to country music, the book tells the story of how the Park Avenue radio station reached a No. 2 position in the New York ratings and became the most listened to country music station of all time. Based on interviews with former WHN staffers, country artists, as well as the personal experiences of Salamon, who was WHN’s program director for more than six years, the book also includes more than 40 photographs.

For those who are unable to make the signing, The Country Music Hall of Fame has the Archer Books-published work in stock.

Salamon, a 2006 Country Radio Hall of Fame inductee, has been an adjunct professor at Belmont and MTSU. He is also the author of the Pittsburgh’s Golden Age of Radio (Arcadia Books).
