AM 1240 WLSC, America’s Biggest Little Station is at it again. Join www.wlscradio.com for a behind the scenes broadcast at Bluegrass on the Waccamaw this Saturday, May 10th. Conway, SC is the scene for what radio station owner Banana Jack Murphy says is going to be an exciting day. “I can’t speak for the rest of the broadcast industry, but we’re trailblazing with our 1,000 watt AM station. Thanks to modern technology, we’re only limited by our imagination.”, says Murphy.
WLSC apparently has found a real niche with bluegrass here along the South Carolina coast and they’re sharing what they’re doing with the rest of the world. Murphy adds, “Our behind-the-scenes broadcast is really going to be a treat for listeners. We’ll actually be right out there in the crowd as well as backstage with the bands. This is going to to be a blast!”
The lineup is quite impressive for Bluegrass on the Waccamaw. Among those scheduled to appear are: III Tyme Out, Grasstowne, The Lewis Family, Drover’s Old Time Medicine Show, The Bluegrass Strangers, The Snyder Family Band, New River, County Line Band and students from The Low Country Bluegrass Academy. The show starts at 12:30 PM and continues until 10:00 PM. The internet broadcast on www.wlscradio.com is scheduled to start at Noon.
Banana Jack will be joined on the broadcast by Tim White, host of the syndicated radio program, The Tim White Bluegrass Show. White is also the host of Mountain Songs, a television program which is seen nationally on Public Television. Bob Scarborough, another radio-television veteran will also be helping out on the broadcast.

Bluegrass on the Corner, a locally produced bluegrass show airs daily at Noon and on Saturdays starting at 10:00 AM.
