Biographical/Historical Note

WSB (Welcome South, Brother) Radio, the first radio station in the South, began broadcasting on March 15, 1922. During the 1920s, Lambdin Kay, "The Little Colonel," was the first full time general manager for WSB and one of the nation's most popular radio personalities. Musical groups, such as the Peachtree Mandolians, played for the South's listening audience. After operating from several locations, WSB moved to the Biltmore Hotel in the 1920s, but by the mid-1950s, WSB Radio and Television had outgrown its location and moved to the "White Columns" on Peachtree Street on April 18, 1956.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains a single WSB radio script from a program aired on May 18, 1939. The script documents a roundtable discussion held by three Georgia Tech professors on ceramic engineering, entitled "Ceramic Georgia, Present and Future."
