WLS (AM) and WLS (FM) are sister radio stations that still air today in Chicago, IL. While they were originally branded together as WLS AM & FM, recent years have given them their own identities. The pairing became known as, “The station for the concerts,” in the 1970’s when they innovatively began to broadcast live shows of bands. In 1981, the band, The Rolling Stones, was invited by the stations to perform a show for their “Tattoo You” album tour. This concert may have not happened without the influence of the stations.
