I try to listen every morning. I've been listening to WSGS since 1988. WSGS is the best radio station in the U.S.A. Heck, let's say in the  whole wide world. Ronnie Sutton, Corbin, KY LOVE this station. Listening in Orlando, Florida. The country needs  more REAL people stations like this,  and a far fewer of the Corporation  Garbage types we have  plethora of ... Best Wishes for continued success. Rob Todd.  We lived in Knott  County for most of our lives, but moved to London 10 years ago. WSGS was  the station we listened to before we  moved and we still listen to you a lot here in London...still the best County Music station on the air! Anita Madden, London, KY. 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 his  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
