WLAC Radio, MCA Records, John Conlee Enterprises
Diane Cash is a native Nashvillian who has spent her entire career in Nashville's music business. She began her career at the legendary WLAC radio, a perennial Top 40 station during the day, but it was WLAC’s two night-time DJ’s – icons John “John R” Richbourg and Bill Hoss Allen—that put the Nashville station on the national map. John Conlee was also a disc jockey at the station, while writing songs on the side. One of those songs-“Rose Colored Glasses”-propelled him to the top of the charts in 1978. Many top 40 artists & celebrities, from Gene Simmons to Joan Rivers paid a visit to WLAC Radio. Billboard Magazine bought WLAC and the station moved to Nashville’s Music Row. Diane eventually moved from radio to MCA Records on Music Row, home to Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard, Brenda Lee, John Conlee, Barbara Mandrell, the Oak Ridge Boys and newcomer George Strait.
From MCA Records Diane moved to John Conlee Enterprises, also on Music Row where she has worked as showdate/promotion co-ordinator and office manager for many years.
