No Joke! “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak, as many television stars have, really did their time in radio and Sajak had his turn behind the mic.
Actually, aside from the fact that this is Pat Sajak like most of you have never heard before, this is also a side of WSM that MOST of our listeners have also never heard. Many of you probably know that there was a period of time that WSM had a split format, a Pop format during the day, and Country all night. If you’ve never heard that pop format, it was quite good, so good, in fact, you really won’t quite believe your ears.
Listen now, courtesy of one who recently left the WSM family. Thanks so much to our newest contributor, Jack Shell. Jack writes:
Sad thing is that station has gone from the Air Castle of the South to the Little House on the Prairie employing only seven full time staffers. I resigned a year ago as production director, but it was a nice time. The Sajak aircheck is a treasure.
Thanks, Jack. What your webmaster remembers most recently, was the fight to keep WSM Country and not take it Sports just a couple of years ago. It seemed so important at the time, but now perhaps that importance has faded along with the intelligibility of most of the AM signals these days… maybe due to the millions of computer devices flooding the AM band with digital noise… but I digress.
Y’all just listen to the aircheck now and enjoy, because its great and belongs to the ages!
