WSM Nashville, Tennessee first signed on the air on 5 October 1925 and is primarily known as the home of The Grand Ole Opry, the world’s longest running radio broadcast. On their clear channel frequency of 650 kHz, they were widely heard across North America for many years. However, with the exception of a coverage area near Nashville, nighttime reception of WSM has become more difficult in more distant areas because of newer stations which now occupy the channel.
I remember listening to them in Spokane in the late 1960’s and into the 1970’s and was fascinated with hearing “The Grand Ole Opry” with the famous stars. They replied to my two reception reports with two QSL cards and a QSL letter. Visiting their station and The Grand Ole Opry is on my bucket list.
