WSML Audio

WSML TED NELSON 1971 Ted worked part-time at WSML from early 1970 to the spring of 1971 while attending Elon. You will hear Jim McDonald on this clip. Jim was the first African-American at WSML, and he played country music. Ted believes the jingles are from Pepper Tanner. Others who were a part of the WSML crew in the early 70s include Byron Tucker, Charlie Brown (Calvin Glover), Scotty Loman and PD Bobby Watkins. Sallie Capps was heard on some produced spots. She was the Traffic Director, receptionist, bookkeeper and secretary for GM Norman Young. Harold Nall was Sales Manager.

Ted really liked the news sounder WSML used, and you can hear it here on this 1971 TED NELSON newscast. A little bit of "And I Love You So" from Bobby Goldsboro leads into it.

Here's Ted's 1971 WSML ID. The deejay openings were produced by Pepper Tanner.

WSML PD BOBBY WATKINS  is on this WSML Station ID.
