I’ve sorta become a collector of photos of the WSM Tower. I’ve written before about how much and why I love pictures of that tower. I’m crazy about it.
A few weeks back, Mr. Smiff and some of Them were guests on WSM Radio the day they were celebrating the 82nd birthday of the historic radio station. Because Mr. Smiff is getting elderly or because he needs to borrow some of my medicine, he did not mention to me until he was literally on his way to do this interview, that the interview was on the grounds of the WSM tower, a stones throw from my childhood home. Had he not won Entertainer of the Year the night before, I mighta got a little testy with him. I’ve never been on the actual grounds of where the tower sits.
Anyway, my new pal Emy Jo Bellenfant-Bilbrey (Mrs. Keith) said I could show you some pictures she took from that event that day. I’ll show the pictures while I sulk at the same time. Even #2 got to go. He was way more impressed with riding in Jamie’s red convertible than anything else.
I LOVE this picture of George Hamilton IV. One of these days, I want a picture of me like this.
Oh…Emy Jo is a Williamson County native and has a super cool antique store. She’s having an Open House this weekend. Go read about it here.
