In 1938, she developed R.F.D. #1, a CBS program that Radio Guide described as "a 'one man' show of music and homely commentary dedicated largely to America's farm women." Beasley was the writer, director, and sole actor for the program, which debuted July 4, 1938.

Another says that her debut in radio came in 1928 in Memphis, Tennessee, when she sang her own composition. The New Orleans Times-Picyaune on Oct 7, 1928, p 29 quotes her as saying in 1924 she approached radio artist Art Gillham, "The Whispering Pianist" asking him to sing her newly published song "If I Could Just Stop Dreaming." He told her "If you can carry a tune at all, you can do your own advertising and it will be an asset to the song. Just make 'em like it." She said that gave her the courage to sing on radio.In 1924 she sang it on WMC in Memphis, then Chicago stations. She became billed as a blues singer "the long tall gal from Dixie." She made records for Victor. By 1931 she had become "staff artist" at KMOX in St. Louis, Missouri.
