Possum Day 2020

WQSB RADIO STATION TOLD BY GAME WARDENS THEY ARE NOT
ALLOWED TO USE A LIVE POSSUM FOR 2020 POSSUM DAY
WQSB Radio Station in Albertville, Alabama has held “POSSUM DAY” which
coincides with “Groundhog Day” each year since 1993. WQSB’s Possum, SAND
MOUNTAIN SAM has made his annual prediction for an early spring or 6 more
weeks of winter and has an Amazing record of 25 Correct Predictions and 1 Incorrect
Prediction(1993).
WQSB’s Official Possum Handler—A Local Pet Groomer—was informed by Game
Wardens who visited her business that Having a Possum-which is considered a Wild
Animal- as a Pet is against the Law in The State of Alabama…
They warned WQSB that any future Possum Days using a LIVE Possum would result
in the arrest of those involved.
Because of this…WQSB will still hold a Possum Day Celebration—But, not at WQSB
Studios. This Press Release is to inform others—especially our friends in the Media
who have supported Sam throughout his career… that they are welcome to visit
WQSB Studios on Friday, January 31, 2020(Sam does not work on Weekends) at
7:45am for Sand Mountain Sam’s Official Announcement of 6 more weeks of winter
or an early spring. Please know WQSB regrets that Sand Mountain Sam will not be at
WQSB Studios for the announcement…he will be at a remote location to make the
official announcement live on the air.

Any questions concerning the unfortunate situation of “others” attempting to keep a
Radio Station and Sand Mountain Sam quiet can be answered by contacting WQSB at
256-878-8575.

Thank You for your continued support
