We were in the station ready to go on , on Ernest's first day at the station, so we had to wait for him to learn the board before we could start. He probably doesn't remember that.

Thankfully, they were not home and were left unharmed, they lost everything.  The people of Hazard pulled together and the unthinkable happened;  I consider God's miracle.  Donations from all over have given them a fresh start, and what seemed to be the most devastating thing to ever happen in their life is now the strongest obstacle they have overcome.  With God's love, the citizen's of your great community brought one family stronger than they ever were.  I grew up in Hazard for 18 years, and I'm very proud to say that I'm a part of such a wonderful community.  I will never forgot the memories that I have there.  Hazard, thank you so much for being the kind, loving friends that I knew and grew to love as well.

"While on vacation in 1989 with cousin Bob, we just happen to wind up in Hazard.  We stopped for a beer in town and wanted to find a campsite for the night.  The barkeep steered us to a campground just south of town.  Now this was in the middle of summer when we pulled into that park.  We had the place to ourselves.  Not one other camper in sight. We got out the boombox and found WSGS.  What a great station!  All the really old country hits like San Antone Rose, Your Cheating Heart and From a Jack to a King.  We put in a cassette and taped 2 hours of some of the finest country this Country has ever heard.  That tape is certainly in the top 3 of my vast collection of recorded tunes!!! We drank plenty of brewskis that night and partied till dawn.  Our one night stand in Hazard will forever be remembered as one of the best.  Right now I'm sitting here putting that tape onto C.D. so I'll have it till I go to that Grand Ole Oprey in the sky."  Mike Czerwinski, Milwaukee WI
