WLCO (1530 AM) (and until March 2007, WLSP) is a radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Lapeer, Michigan, it first began broadcasting under the WTHM call sign. The station's format, from Citadel Media, is called "Real Country" and combines classic country favorites with select current titles. Prior to the current format, as WLSP, the station had aired satellite-fed adult standards from ABC (Timeless Classics), and, prior to that, Talk and Sports formats. The "Real Country" format is not the first time 1530 AM has programmed classic country; as WWGZ-AM in the early 1990s, the station was known as "Country Gold."

For more on the history of AM 1530, see sister station WQUS.

It operates from local sunrise to local sunset to protect clear channel station WCKY (AM) in Cincinnati, Ohio which sometimes interferes with the WLCO signal during the sunrise and sunset time periods.
