580 AM WELO is an Adult Standards station in (W) TupELO, Mississippi.  They carried a Country & Western format at the time this sticker was printed.

Elvis Presley grew up listening to WELO.  In 1945 at age 10, he performed live on the station in a youth talent contest.  Elvis came in second place and won $5.00 and free admission to the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Dairy Show.  He would later appear on WELO as part of the weekly music jamborees hosted by Mississippi Slim.
