Airchexx Where Classic Radio Lives
Advertisements

From Contributor Rob Grayson, here’s the final installment of our series of Memphis radio from 1973. WMQM at 1480 AM was a fulltime Country station – a station that specialized, apparently, in older Country music, judging by the songs heard on this short aircheck.

There’s just over two minutes of this scope featuring Art Scott, and Mike Mitchell of WMQM Information News. 1480 has been Black Gospel WBBP for many years now, and in 2002, a new 50kw station at 1600 AM was licensed to Lakeland, TN in Fayette County, out east of Memphis, which now uses the WMQM call letters. That station is tied in with Christian WWCR Worldwide shortwave.
