Big WAYS Radio, Charlotte, NC

In 1965, Big WAYS radio (610 AM) arrived in Charlotte, and shook up the airwaves. Big WAYS was known to play more Rock & Roll in amongst their Top 40 playlist, and their promotions got the station a lot of attention. Revisit those heady days here via a Facebook page about Big WAYS radio here-

    1. Hi Michael. WAYS actually signed on in 1941. It wasn't until the Kaplan family bought it in 1965 that it went to a Top 40 format, and became the popular Big WAYS.
