WPAX - AM 1240 - Thomasville, GA

The Music of your Life

When you first walk into the WPAX & WTUF station in downtown Thomasville, you may not notice the brass plate on the front door that ... See more simply states "Established 1922". What you will notice as you enter the lobby, are the pictures covering the walls. These pictures at first seem obviously older black and whites and display a quiet and modest history. If you examine these pictures a little closer, you start to notice some famous people like Barry Goldwater shaking hands with Hoyt Wimpy the founder, and President Jimmy Carter sitting behind a WPAX microphone. The one picture that really caught my eye was of this same building I was standing in, back in 1934. That was a long time ago ! The more I learned, the more interesting it became. WPAX is the 20th oldest radio station in the United States and the 3rd oldest station in Georgia. It's still on the air, still in the same building, and still playing some of the same beautiful songs. Although it is now run by it's fourth owner, who also DJ's on a daily basis. WPAX broadcasts it's warm and mellow theme of "The Music of your Life". It's a nice mixture of everything from Adult Contemporary, and Jazz, to Big Band Era, Blues, and the Classics like Frank Sinatra, Barbra Striesand, and Ella Fitzgerald. Some artists you may have never heard before. Some will be bring back a terrific memory and a little smile. Between the music and the photos you can't help but feel like you're back in the good ole days.
