It seems some excitement is already brewing for this year’s Radio Show. Its host, the city of Nashville, has declared the week of the show, “Radio Week.”
“I, Megan Barry, Mayor of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, do hereby proclaim the week of September 19-25, 2016, as Radio Week,” declared Nashville Mayor, Megan Barry, in a signed resolution this week.
This is the first time Nashville has declared a “Radio Week.” Nashville has a unique relationship with radio given its reputation as a “Music City,” so the established city holiday seeks to recognize “radio’s importance to the city’s economic well-being in music creation and new artist establishment,” according to the resolution.
The 68th annual Radio Show will take place Sept. 21–23 at Nashville’s Omni Hotel.
