Roger Morgan's old station is now Country music; a nice change.

I also saw an article in today's AVIS that Roger was evicted from his apartment for non payment of rent--since November.

My first reaction was: what were they thinking? I seems to me that country would be a very small audience on STX. I also wonder if the new owners made the decision on hard data or it was a hunch.

Disclaimer: I don't listen to Country & Western.

Nor do I Sugarlander but a lot of people do. C&W bands are popular here, line dancing was big in its day, and fwiw local facebook chatter is all positive about having a c/w station.

When I lived on Grand Cayman I worked for a radio group that raised a country station. The local population went nuts for it. As I was told, back in the day they used ham radios and received signal from the underbelly of America. Texas, Alabama, etc...and so they had a deep appreciation for country, especially the classic stuff.

As much as I love country music, I hope that they will soon provide some community service programming and an open forum for people to discuss island issues. While they may have had issues with RW Morgan, certainly there are people on this island who could host a worthy call-in show.

If they don't, I will actively NOT listen.

A study has proven the suicide rate is much higher among those who listen to country music just so you know ........ but hey to each his own.......

What a welcome change. I'm already enjoying it. I was personally getting tired of hearing the same 20+ yr. old music over and over. For those who don't like country music, there are other stations they can listen to. I believe there is a huge country music following on the island. I wish the new station owners the best of luck.

Foreshame!

Besides anybody out there can get a hold of the latest billboard charts for country, they don't need to listen to another station to get it. By the way, don't blame the DJ, blame the programmer who set up the music log for the day.

There's a lot of Gulf Coast folks down here doing contract work for WAPA and HOVENSA.

A lot of them live in Condo Row, and most of THEM listen to loud country music of the Willie and Waylon variety.

(I had to get out of Mill Harbor after two years; mostly because of the gunfire, but also because of the LOUD country music.)

I have worked in radio for almost 20 years and country radio is a very profitable genre. I enjoy all types of music, on occasion even a little hip hop. It seems the new owners may be looking to tap an open market, as there does not seem to be any competition. Programming any station is a difficult task, the hard part is trying to make all of your listeners happy. I wish them the best of luck.

Love the country music from the early days up to the 70's after that it seems more rock than country.

A study has proven the suicide rate is much higher among those who listen to country music

The likely source of the statement is the research article entitled, "The Effect of Country Music on Suicide."
http://www.scribd.com/doc/2917738/The-Effect-of-Country-Music-on-Suicide
Scroll down to the 4th and 5th pages for the Results and Conclusions. The researchers found a high correlation between country music and suicide within the white population, but causality appears to be debatable. They said, "While country music per se probably will not drive people to suicide, given its link to a subculture and its appeal to persons within the subculture who are already at increased risk for suicide, it can impact on suicide rates."

The article also won an Ig Nobel Prize in 2004 for Medicine. From Wikipedia: "The [Ig Nobel] awards are sometimes veiled criticism...Most often, however, they draw attention to scientific articles that have some humorous or unexpected aspect."

i love the crossover country music that's out these days. i'm so happy to have this station! 93.5 had similar stuff as 104.9 (and then also some of the same stuff as 96.1) and we needed something different. i hope it continues.

I am so psyched, country music in the VI? What is the station # and can you get it on STT? Although, I am not a huge fan of the older stuff, the new country is pretty good, love Chesney! Seems to me they will do well with the demographics of where a lot of the tourists come from, Texas and small town America.

It is too bad that people all have different tastes, but why the critcisims about people who just HATE this music, simple answer, move the tuner off this station?
