Now Entering WAMM Country on 1230 AM
The Delta blues created by artists such as Son House and Blind Lemon Jefferson influenced many artists, from Led Zeppelin to Eric Clapton to Bob Dylan. The Rolling Stones named themselves after a Muddy Waters tune.
Around the same time, artists such as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family made music evoking folklore and heritage of the South. Dubbed “hillbilly” music, it influenced another genre of music made by Johnny Cash, John Prine, Billy Joe Shaver and more.
Robert Johnson sang about the Crossroad Blues. Meet us at the new crossroads of these two uniquely American music influences in WAMM Country, now playing every day 6a-6p on 1230 AM. Then at night, hear The Talk of the Valley on 1230 AM.
