1340 AM WTYS is a Classic Country station in Marianna, Florida.  My best guess is that this sticker dates to the mid-1970s.  Various Broadcasting Yearbooks from that decade list WTYS as having a C&W format indicating that they've been a Country station for the better part of five decades.

Geneva-on-the-Lake / WKKY

Today we took a drive up to Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio for a few vacation days on Lake Erie. On the way to our bed & breakfast we stopped at the Harpersfield Covered Bridge, a beautiful structure crossing the Grand River in Ashtabula County. We would end up searching out about a dozen covered bridges during our three day stay. After checking in to the Lakehouse Inn we went to a beach in Geneva State Park and swam until rain clouds moved in. Later, on the way to dinner we stopped at a candy store for salt water taffy and then went to an antiques store where I found a giant bin of vintage pinback buttons. My patient wife and I sorted through them all in search of pins from radio stations. We ended up finding about a dozen from classical station WCLV in nearby Cleveland as well as a few keychains. After dinner we drove around aimlessly, listening to some refreshingly underplayed oldies on “Gold 93.7” WQGR and playing the Zillow-fueled “guess-how-much-this-lakefront-property-costs” game. Then we randomly came across Walnut Beach Park right at dusk in time to see a beautiful sunset. Today was a perfect day.

104.7 WKKY is a Country station licensed to Geneva, Ohio.  The pinback button was found at the aforementioned antiques store and dates to when they broadcast at 104.9 FM.
