Sutton Old Time Music Hour now on WSM

Sutton Old Time Music HourThe Sutton Old Time Music Hour, which features bluegrass and old music performances recorded before a live audience each week, is delighted to announce that they have added the country music superstation WSM in Nashville to their list of syndicators.

Host Sam Stout welcomes bands in on Saturday evenings from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at The Sutton General Store in Granville, TN. If you call ahead, you can even get reservations for a country style dinner before the show.

Programs are recorded and packaged for syndication either uninterrupted for public radio, or broken into segments for commercial stations. It is now carried on several dozen stations, both terrestrial and online, including Armed Forces Radio, and now WSM, the home of the Grand Ole Opry.

Syndicators carry the program at different times and days during the week, so check the schedule to see when it airs near you, or plan to catch it live when you are traveling in middle Tennessee. Stout keeps things moving through the broadcast portion, and includes live advertiser spots just like old time radio.

This past Saturday they celebrated the 8th anniversary of the Sutton Old Time Music Hour at the reconditioned T.B. Sutton General Store, built in 1880, and located just a short drive from Nashville in Granville. The Sutton family donated the store to the city some years ago and it is used now as a hub for tourist activity in the historic city, which developed as a riverboat town in the 19th century.

More details are available online.
