WSB History

90 years of Atlanta broadcasting history

WSB @ 90

The history of WSB is the history of an industry.  It’s the history of Atlanta.  And it’s the foundation of everything you hear on the air--or online―today.  There’d be no Neal Boortz or Cap’n Herb without a fellow named Lambdin Kay.  On our 90th anniversary, we're taking a look at the station through the years...

Many thanks...

Thanks to Kevin Fleming, Popular Music and Culture Archivist at Georgia State University Library's Special Collections and Archives for his assistance in gathering info, photos, and archival audio.  Photos used by permission.
