yesterday, 50 miles
from Indy and 60 miles north of Louisville and I picked your station up on my car radio.
great work. God Bless. Danny Stinnet I love this radio station. Glad
you're online, now I can hear the best music all the way in Louisville.
Thanks. Faron & Scott, I enjoy your show. I try to listen every
morning. I've been listening to WSGS since 1988. WSGS is the best
station in the U.S.A. Heck, let's say REAL people stations like this,

Hello. I am very glad to see WSGS has a live
internet stream so I can listen to news and the music from the place
where I grew up. I am really enjoying it. Thanks. Bill in Ohio. I am so
thankful to be able to hear news down here in South Carolina from Hazard
and also to be able to see the pictures you present of our town. I
appreciate the Flashback, i.e. Cash Walker...I
remember watching Cas and
humor was coarse but good and sometimes I smiled even after the
programs thinking back what he had said. Anyhow, I am blessed to be able
to listen to hometown news. WSGS rides the airways from KY to SC very
clearly. Thanks so very much. Idalee Hansel, Spartanburg, SC WSGS, I
absolutely love your show!
You all are the last station I know of that
plays true Country Music. If I lost your show I don't know what I would
do. I have listened to WSGS for years on the way from my home in
Lexington to Pineville. You all have created countless memories that I
could share with my Grandfather with your all's station. One day I hope
to visit Hazard and get to see where WSGS is. I also love the listen
live streaming. Now when I go off to college in Florida I will be able
to keep up with this great station. Thank you guys and keep up the
amazing work! God bless! Nathaniel in Lexington, KY
