I'm not sure we needed MORE proof that the era of the phone call is over, but here you go.

According to a new survey, the overwhelming majority of people would rather have you TEXT them than call them. The only exception is people over 55.

72% of people under 39 would rather you text, and so would 61% of people between 40 and 54.

For people over 55, 35% prefer a text, 49% prefer a call.

Also, for what it's worth, people who prefer calls over texts are almost three times less likely to have smartphones.

Really though, does this surprise ANYONE?

If you ever get bored answering when people ask you, "So, what do you do?" . . . this is a GREAT option.

Right now, people on Reddit are describing what they do for a living . . . but as a crime. Here are some of the best examples . . .

1. "I drive fast and disregard the rules of my road to break into people's homes and cause immense water damage. Afterwards I tear down their ceilings and drywall and leave without cleaning anything up." That's a . . . firefighter.

2. "I help people circumvent copyright by getting them loads of free books, DVDs, CDs, games, and any other media that's come out in the last hundred years." That's a . . . librarian.

3. "I force children to stay in a small room to do paperwork without paying them." That's a . . . teacher.

4. "I hand someone instruments to cut into an unconscious person." That's a . . . surgical assistant.

5. "I'm a drug dealer." That's a . . . pharmacist.

If time travel was possible, what would you rather do? Visit the future after all this nonsense is over, or opt for simpler times and visit the past? An online survey asked 4,000 people, and the most popular choice across all age groups was . . . the past.

65% of people who answered said they'd rather travel back in time. Only 35% would rather see what the future holds.

Young people were much more likely to say they'd travel to the future though. 47% of people under 25 said they'd check out the future, compared to less than a third of people over 50.

What about you? Which direction would you go?

QOTD: We all know that concerts, movies, and other large public gatherings are going to change. The question is HOW?

According to Britain's "Mirror" tabloid, the music industry is hoping to get concerts up and running by the fall . . . and they might do it by having fans walk through a DISINFECTANT MIST on their way into the venue.

Temperature-taking and masks could also be part of the new normal.

Would you go to a concert and get sprayed with a mysterious "disinfectant" mist?

1957, June 17 ....1410 WCMT AM began broadcasting from a small studio on the Fulton Highway in Martin TN where we’ve been for the past 63 years.

1410 AM is one of twelve radio signals in our radio family that serves West Tennessee and West Kentucky.

JT Sudbury filed for the original radio station license for Martin and we’ve been broadcasting ever since.

Twenty two years later Mr Sudbury sold the radio stations to Thunderbolt Broadcasting because he wanted the radio stations to remain in local hands.

Harold T. Brundige, a respected attorney in Martin, formed Thunderbolt and since 1979 Thunderbolt has been locally owned and operated.

There have only been two antenna towers on the property. A second tower went up in 1989 to replace the first and added more height.

City of Martin alderman Billy McAdoo was the first voice on WCMT and his first word was “hello!” Since that time many voices have been on the WCMT microphones through the years...

In 1959 Dwight “Duke” Drumm became the station manager, a position he would hold until he retired 20 years later.

Through the years public officials, children, quartets, politicians, ag leaders, university officials and thousands of others have used our microphones to communicate their message to our listeners. Advertisers have found WCMT stations to be extremely effective in getting their message to their customers which has allowed us to prosper through the years! 

WCMT has provided thousands of hours of high school and college sports coverage, election return results, broadcast of parades, we aired forums, religious broadcasts, “live on the scene” news reports, breaking weather and many other events including coverage of county fairs and even a milking contest!

WCMT is privileged to serve our loyal listeners and advertisers and we are honored to have your support through these 63 years.

We believe our Thunderbolt Radio family is one of the best in America in serving our communities and our listeners.

Because of our  incredible community service the National Association of Broadcasters presented WCMT with its coveted “Crystal” award for outstanding community service. The station has also been a Marconi finalist for Outstanding Radio.

We thank you for  listening and God bless you for listening to WCMT and our other Thunderbolt radio stations!

Our radio family includes WCMT 1410 and re-broadcasts on 92.7, 96.1, 99.7, 100.5 and 103.3.

Other family stations include
KYTN FM 104.9
WQAK FM 105.7
WCDZ FM 95.1 & 102.9

Tropical Storm Cristobal is moving north across the Gulf of Mexico. This storm will make landfall Sunday evening and will continue north along and west of the Mississippi River through early next week. While the storm will be weakening after moving inland, impacts are still possible across the Mid-South Monday and possibly on Tuesday.

The primary concern will be the potential for heavy rainfall. Widespread rainfall amounts in excess of 2 inches are possible with some areas along and west of the Mississippi River picking up 4-6 inches. This may result in flash flooding and could also affect the water levels on the Mississippi river and its tributaries. The heaviest rainfall is anticipated on Monday.

Gusty east winds will be possible as the storm nears Monday, shifting more southerly Monday night. Gusts to around 35 mph are possible, especially in the delta counties. A Wind Advisory may eventually be needed.

Finally, with the storm staying primarily to our west, the Mid-South will be in a favorable location for tropical tornadoes. These tornadoes are often brief and can spin-up with little notice. The greatest threat for tornadoes will be in northwest Mississippi and east-central Arkansas on Monday, but could linger into Tuesday. NWS

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across the Mid-South this afternoon. A few strong to severe storms are possible, mainly across West Tennessee and north Mississippi, with the area of greatest risk specifically in northeast Mississippi. These storms are most likely between 2 PM and 8 PM.

With a fair amount of heating expected today, conditions appear favorable for storms capable of damaging winds and hail up to the size of quarters. The tornado threat is low today. NWS

Nope, this won't mess with your kid's life at all.

There's a debate going on online right now about whether it's cool to name your baby after your PET.

A pregnant woman shared her story on the British website Mumsnet about how she and her husband have been brainstorming names for their baby, and one that her husband keeps pushing is the same name they gave to their CAT.

Some people think it's fine to give your kid the same name as a pet . . . but most of them think it's a bad call.

By the way, the cat we're talking about here is named Mungo. But don't let the awful name cloud your thoughts on this debate . . . some people's pets might have decent names that could also work for a baby.

Also, some of the other names this couple is considering are Ivo, Jonty, and Jago. Again, don't let those names cloud your thoughts on the debate either. This particular couple just isn't good at names.

What do YOU think? Is it ok to name your kiddo after your furry best friend?

Behind the scenes ...Inside Weakley County Municipal Electric System.

When the phone rings and a customer reports an outage that trouble ticket then goes to the engineer in department. 

The white pieces of paper on the desk and the large screen indicate to the  engineering team the number of trouble tickets the electric company is working ....as of 8 PM approximately 3500 customers remain without power. Radios and telephones serve as communications to linemen in the field who are working to make repairs in the air and on the ground. An amazing amount of coordination takes place to ensure safety.

A major storm flashed through West Tennessee this afternoon causing power outages and hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages to homes and structures and personal property.  Many West Tennessee communities were hard hit by the storm that is moved into middle Tennessee

The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded some parts of the Mid-South to a slight risk (2 out of 5) for severe storms for today. Much of the overall thinking remains the same. The timing still looks like late morning into the early evening, and damaging wind/hail would be the primary threats with any severe storms.

At mid morning, a complex of thunderstorms was moving through southeastern Kansas. These storms will move east-southeast through the day. Additional thunderstorms should develop during the afternoon hours over southern Missouri and portions of Arkansas and also move to the east-southeast..

Keep an eye on weather developments, especially if you are north of the I-40 corridor. NWS

Another potential for severe weather across much of the Mid-South Wednesday night. The greatest threat will exist to our south toward central Mississippi and southern Arkansas, but a few strong to severe storms are possible a bit farther north. Some of the latest guidance suggests a lot of these storms will be elevated which would limit the tornado threat across the Mid-South. The main hazards would be large hail and damaging winds.

Locally heavy rainfall will be possible as well and could exacerbate the already moist soil and elevated river levels. We'll keep you updated on any changes to the current forecast. NWS

I wish especially during this time that you would pick up the 5:00 news.
Is Thunderbolt Broadcasting going to broadcast all the girls and boys basketball games for this years Martin Lions Club Christmas Tournament? If so, what station will it be on?
I will always appreciate our friendship, Paul. You are special and deserving of all the success you have and will achieve.
I've noticed that you guys are playing music from the 80s and 90s again. You used to, then went to all modern Top 40. Please keep playing the oldies but goodies I grew up on. Hope y'all play some 80s shows like Nina Blackwoods Absolutely 80s again.
