�I, Megan Barry, Mayor of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, do hereby proclaim the week of September 19-25, 2016, as Radio Week,� declared Nashville Mayor Megan Barry in a signed resolution this week.

This is the first time Nashville has declared a Radio Week.

The 68th annual Radio Show will take place Sept. 21�23 at Nashville�s Omni Hotel.�
