Ernest Sparkman was with the station for nearly 60 year, and Jay Lasslo for 41 years. Hazard got a radio station and an airport at about the same time, so we thought we had hit the big time.
To many listeners in East Kentucky (and beyond the region who could pick up the boom signal of WSGS), Ernest and Jay were the voices of mountain high school sports for five decades, doing regular games along with district and regional tournament action, and every game of the Kentucky State High School Boys "Sweet 16" Tourney during their time at the microphones. The Singing Miner was on the air about then and Hazard even had a big-time radio star.
I only wish I still had that record, but that was over 50 years ago." Billie Reda Sowers Dayton, Ohio "Most days at noon time, did the station have the Eddy Arnold Show?
I remember at around noontime you always would hear the famous Cattle Call.
Thanks for many years of good programming, good listening and just good sangin".
Ida Lee Hansel, Spartanburg, SCJudging from our readers' responses, the song, "Goodnight Dear Lord" holds lasting memories, even though it hasn't been aired at the end of a broadcast in over twenty years.
I had a small radio behind the counter and loved to listen to the musical programs, especially the requests that listeners would make to hear or dedicate a certain song to someone.
There was a store down Main Street that had an outside speaker that played when the singing miner was on the air.
The station was the first in Kentucky to broadcast a Country Music format on the FM dial.
In the 1960s, the "easy listening" format dominated most FM stations in the United States. I would love to see some of their pics on your site.
Then I grew up, had children and grandchildren and WSGS was my link during football and basketball season, as I sat back in an easy chair down here in Spartanburg and listened to my grandson play ball, so far removed and yet through WSGS, I was right there cheering them on.
I keep up with my hometown through WSGS now and really like the old poem says, 'grow old along with me, the best of life is yet to be...' and keep on going, Folks, and you can rest assured that I will be listening way down here in the South.
Main Street and at Begley Drug, later Huff Drug on East Main Street.
