I saw this circa 1930's-40's radio station postcard while browsing around American Radio History. The call letters for radio station WMPS stood for "Memphis Press Scimitar," which was once one of the daily newspapers that served the city. Although the newspaper is gone, the station is still around, and up until about five years ago, it had an "adult standards" format (Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, etc.).
