"I was born and reared in Cawood, Ky. in Harlan County and attended Cawood Elementary school when Cawood Ledford was  a teacher and was a part time announcer for WHLN in Harlan.  We had to go to the top of Crummies mountain to listen to him announce Cumberland Valley Conference games.  He then went to WHAS in Louisville and continued to announce UK. games.  I listened to him all of his broadcasting career and loved to hear him call the games.  It was just like being there.

"I am a former resident of the Hazard area.  I was sorry to hear about the recent fire which put WSGS off the air.  I am currently listening to the Internet broadcast of past news stories. Please continue this service as it is very important to those of us who have moved from the Hazard area.
