Scope and Contents: The WETS-FM records contain correspondence, performer agreements and worksheets, program guides, public service announcements, wire service bulletins, and program recordings and dub sheets. Also included are applications, with related materials, to the Tennessee Arts Commission for funding of special serial programs such as "Zeitgeist."

The records date from 1966 to 1986; however, the bulk of the records date from 1982 to 1984. A manual predates the station's beginning.

The paper records largely concern scheduling and programming policies, financial operation and various news and community activity items. The audiotapes cover a wide variety of subjects including contemporary legal issues, environmental issues, energy conservation, foreign relations, Appalachian culture and literature, and traditional and contemporary Appalachian music.
