1949 RadioA sweet little syndicated weekly music program graced the airwaves of the South in 1949, Southland Echoes. The program originated from the studios of WGTS, Atlanta. WGST was a commercially licensed station that belonged to the Georgia School of Technology. In 1949, the station spent a year as a full Mutual Network affiliate before becoming an ABC affiliate in 1950, and the first station in Atlanta to play Rock and Roll.

Southland Echoes was a commercial plug for a trio of patent medicines; "Black Draught" laxative, "Zyrone Tonic" for iron deficient anemia, and "Cardui" Black Draught Laxativefor "women's problems"; mothers were encouraged to write in for the "Hints for Women" booklet to aid in having "that discussion" with their daughters.

The program featured a trio of acts, usually led off by the humor of Jam-Up and Honey, a pair of blackface comedians. Jam-Up and Honey were the headline act for the touring tent show. he complex harmonies of the Homeland Gospel Quartet accompanied by piano, and a yodeling duet with guitar, the Jones Sisters, shared the musical duties on Southland Echoes.
