I’m a little biased, but I think this guy is great. He’s my brother. This is a slice of an afternoon in 1974. The station imaging is voiced by the legendary Dr. Grady Brock, who went from Jackson to WCFL, Chicago and beyond

We know next to nothing about this little station that could compete with the big boys in SOME markets, we’re sure of that! Unfortunately, 5,000 watts on 1590 kHz didn’t go very far compared to similar powered stations lower down on the dial. But it sure sounded good!

What we do know about 1590 Jackson, MS is this via Wikipedia. The station went dark on 01/01/2012 and the then current call letters were deleted from the FCC’s callsign database.
